Giving our worries to God

This is an activity using stones to help us to think about handing over our worries to God.

You will ideally need to use fairly large stones for this to be effective.

Hand the stones out and let people hold and feel their weight.

Get people to think about problems or worries that they have and to think of them as burdens.

The Bible says in 1 Peter 5.7,

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

We listened to the music in the YouTube video below and as we listened, people were invited to come and lay their stones down to indicate that they were willing to give their worries and cares to God.

Will we trust in God enough to give him our worries?

Do we believe that God can work powerfully in any situation?

We then went on to think about how God is our Rock and solid foundation and you can read some thoughts about this here. We lay down the burden of a problem and gain a solid rock

This is an example of the creative communication that we use at Orchard Baptist.

Hi, my name is Graeme and I’m married to a very patient wife. We have 4 children, 2 rabbits, a terrapin (and not a lot of peace and quiet!). I’m a Regional Minister for the Eastern Baptist Association in the UK (the views expressed in this blog are my own) and I am especially interested in making Church accessible to people who have no church background and also in how we disciple people in order to equip them to live out their faith in the 21st Century.
