Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Your Name

This evening we start on the Lord’s Prayer.  An interesting discussion occurred here around the theme of “fathers” in the media.  We like to start each night with a game themed around the lesson.  This evening, we’re playing “Father and Kid Duos”.  I needed fathers that Middle-School students would be able to recognize on sight.

In the end, we had a hard time coming up with a lot of options, and those that we did find weren’t very good role models.  What a sad statement on our world today.  This is why we need Godly men to step up and be Godly fathers to their children or role models to other students!

If you’re interested, you can play along with us this evening (or whenever you happen to read this post).  The first half of the file contains the instructions and the images of the fathers.  The second half has all the acceptable answers.  Enjoy!

    Very interesting. It is a sad commentary on our society. Who was the good looking guy at the end? By the way, Wisken has no h in his name.

  2. It seems he borrowed the “h” from Sarah.

  4. No, that’s the point. There weren’t very good role models. Most of the fathers that kids recognize are terrible examples of being a father.
