Archive for fortune cookies
I was leading a service a while ago with the theme of ‘God’s promises’. Whilst I was prepping for this, I had an idea based on the fact that we can be assured of God fulfilling all He has promised to us through the Bible. This hope is quite different from the hope suggested in many other things e.g. horoscopes, fortune cookies etc….So I decided to bake fortune cookies and put Bible verses in them instead of fortunes.
This went down really well in the service, they tasted great, and I was being observed for my uni degree – my tutor loved the idea too. Bonus. However, I would say that the whole process was pretty time consuming. From finding the verses, to a few trays of undercooked or burnt blobs of cookie mix, then eventually making enough for everyone in the service; my advice to you would be to leave yourself a chunk of time to do it in.
It’s good fun though, if I ever did it again I would defo get some young people over and make it a bit of a thing. Informal ed and all that jazz – if baking promise cookies isn’t enough of an experience to foster learning, I don’t know what is….
Do excuse me, think I’ve had my essay head on for a bit too long today.
Here are the verses I used: Isaiah 40:29, Psalm 32:8, Phil 4:7, Isaiah 2:3, Proverbs 3:5-6, John 12:46, Psalm 46:1, Joshua 1:5
