Now, y’all, it’s been firmly established that I have a warped sense of humor andÂ sometimes an interesting way of seeing things. Okay, I’m snarky. But really… there are some things, well meaning as they may start out, that just cross certain lines (pun so not intended there).
The below was a forward on one of my scrapbooking lists, and all I could think is what this sort of object lesson would do to a child’s psychosis: Cocoa with marshmallows? Disconcerting. S’mores? Scary. And roasting marshmallows? Perish the trauma!
Not to mention what Communion would become: Marshmallow fluff and Peeps!
To explain… here is the email content:
10 large marshmallows
Give each child a triangle of crescent roll dough. This is to represent the
burial cloth that Jesus’ body was wrapped in. Have the child dip the
marshmallow in melted butter to represent the oils that His body was
anointed with. Then have them roll it into cinnamon/sugar mixture
representing the spices used on His body. Have them wrap the marshmallow
into the “cloth” and place in preheated oven (350) to bake. Tell them that
although we are only going to wait on the “tomb” for 15 minutes, Jesus’ body
was actually in the tomb for three days before He arose. Tape the oven shut
to represent the sealing of the tomb. After the time is up, have the kids
remove the tape and carefully remove their rolls from the oven. Let them
open a roll and see that Jesus has risen. Enjoy
