This station follows the talk “The Hall Of Faith”
A large pile of heavy objects (such as books would be great or a box of large stones) Printed instructions
Alternatively you could have large rocks or bricks with labels on each listing the things that slow us down.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.
Pick up as many books/stones from the pile as you can carry.
How heavy are they?
How long do you think that you would be able to carry them for? How much would carrying them slow you down in a race?
The passage we read today encourages us to put down anything that we carry that slows us down in the race God has called us to run.
What is it that slows you down?
Attitudes? Guilt? Fear? Sin? Anxiety?
Ask God to help you to put these things aside and to run the race that he has set before you.
As you do this put the weight down as a sign of letting go everything that might hold you back.
