Some of you may have noticed when I mention going to church it is on Saturday. Yes, Saturday is the Sabbath I observe. I have been a leader in the children’s Sabbath Schools almost constantly since the boys arrived on the scene. For the last few years I’ve lead the Juniors which are pretty much ages 10-12. One of the favorite things for the young people in that class is games. It seems their most favorite game is Bible Jeopardy. I started making categories for the game when I was leading the 7-9 year olds and have just kept adding as I thought of new categories or wanted to review a previous week’s lesson. There are two boys that have been in my classes almost constantly since I started doing this game and they know almost every answer. They are good friends, but I can’t let them be on the same team or that team has a very unfair advantage!
As you know from previous posts, I’m not moving too well. Therefore, I won’t be going to church today. The assitant leader is out of town so POG (Poor Old Guy) is leading for me. He was not thrilled with the idea. I got up early this morning and added a categorey to Jeopardy that has been bouncing around in my head — Bible Math. I managed to include division, multiplication, addition, percentages and geometry in my five questions. I may add some more categories while I’m sitting here alone.
I counted up the categories I have right now, and there are 40. Some have more than 5 questions. If I come up with extra, I just layer the questions. I use a large bulletin board and thumb tacks for the game. I thought there might be someone out there in cyber land that would be interested so, I’m adding the word file to the download box on the right side of this blog.
