Psalm 22 | Games


Psalm - Games


Psalm 22 is usually quoted nearer Easter than the second week of lent, but in the readings for year B we see the other end of the Psalm – not the opening where the cross bound Jesus cries the first verse about ‘God forsaking him’ but the place the psalm ends. Like the first line of a hymn I wonder if people couldn’t help sing the whole song in their heads as they walked away from the cross, a song of torment that lifts at the end into a song of praise not just by the psalmist but by all the families of nations. These games concentrate on the idea of families uniting in praise.

Wipe that smile off your face – The first person pulls their silliest smile and directs it at each child in the circle, trying to make someone giggle or laugh. On the leaders mark they use one hand to literally “wipe” the smile off their face, and hand it to the next person, and on it goes. This can get silly really quickly.

Essential Teachers notes:
This week we look at Psalm 22 verses 23 to 31. It’s a passage about, God’s people, the nations, and the call of praise. Rather than tell a story about the passage we will incorporate the verses into the ‘talk’ time.
These psalm lessons follow the Lectionary passages for the six weeks of year B Lent.

Tell this story or a similar one of your choice from a favourite bible translation or story book. This version is supplied for inspiration, feel free to omit or embellish to give it your personal voice.

Main passage: Psalm 22
Additional Passages: none specific.
