I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Tonight’s lesson is going to focus on David – shepherd and king – who points the way to Jesus, the Good Shepherd and Christ the King.
With that in mind, I quickly assembled a shepherd’s costume to bring tonight which I am modeling below. I don’t intend to wear this myself (although many catechists effectively teach in costume) but instead plan to invite one of the students to dress up as David. The costume is made up of a towel over my head, held in place by a sweatband, and a blanket over my shoulders. I made the shepherd’s staff out of a long wooden pole/stick I found laying around my basement. I added foil and cardboard to shape the crook.
Lesson plan to follow soon!
