Messy Monday 12.10.20

Hello Messy Monday Friends,

Jesus told great stories. He told a story about a party where everyone was invited and welcome, including those who were often left out.
Here’s the story

But No One Arrived

The bells were ringing, because there was a wedding. The streets were lined with people, because there was a wedding. The crowds had begun to gather, because there was a wedding. But no one arrived. Oh no! Where were the guests who were invited to the wedding? Where were the well dressed invited to the wedding? Where were the important people invited to the wedding? No one came. Oh no! Some said they were too busy to come to the wedding. Some said they didn’t have a hat to come to the wedding. Some said they needed more time to come to the wedding. So no one arrived. Oh no! The king told his servants to invite everyone to the wedding. The king told his servants to invite all the crowds to the wedding. The king told his servants to invite anyone they saw to the wedding. Does that mean us? Oh no! But the king wanted everyone to come to the wedding. “The food is all ready, so come to the wedding.” “I’ll give you outfits, so come to the wedding.” So everyone replied, “Oh yes!” So everyone who was waiting was invited to the wedding. Everyone who was watching was invited to the wedding. Everyone who was poor and least was invited to the wedding. And they began to celebrate. Oh wow! Are we invited to go to the wedding? Shall we go now and go to the wedding? Is there a place for us to go to the wedding? There is, let’s go! Oh yes! It’s a celebration for all this wonderful wedding! It’s a kingdom picture this wonderful wedding! It’s a story of welcome, this wonderful wedding! Are we invited? Oh yes, we are!

It’s the school holiday week so why not have a wee party with the people who live in your house with you ? Put on some party or dressing up clothes, make and eat some party food and play some music and some games.

Take care and stay safe
