A parachute can be a stormy see, a mountain to climb or the journey to get there; a picnic on the beach or a desert discussion; a dash through the sea or a walk on the water. It can be a stable, tent, temple, tomb or the belly of a whale. It can be Noah’s big boat or Joseph’s colourful coat; the Samaritan woman’s well or Ezekiel’s wheel. It can be a shipwreck or an island; a deep sea dive or Jacob’s simmering stew. It can be a field for scattering seeds or the breeze that scatters them; the Spirit moving over the water.
A parachute can tell the story of Creation, Advent Easter, Pentecost and The Gospel. It can be raised in praise or lowered in prayer.
Do you have a parachute in your resource cupboard but don’t know what to do with it? Parachute Fun is for you! It is packed with pick-and-mix activities for telling, teaching and worship. It contains stories, songs, prayers, reflections and games. The physical book is now out of print, but an extended e-book will soon be on it’s way.
