Time Travel at St. Mark's Episcopal Church

Wondering where I have been?  Having recovered from the week long Harry Potter Camp in late June, I plunged at once into preparations for the Marketplace based Vacation Bible School hosted by St. Mark's in cooperation with four other Episcopal churches in our Deanery.  We traveled back in time to the first century to see what life was like shortly after Jesus' death and resurrection.  Thirty-two preschool and elementary aged children spent four days with the 40 or so youth and adult leaders who helped to recreate another time and place.

Tasting typical figs, plums and olives, typical foods of early Nazareth.
Learning to make pottery dolls and animals.

The Mosaic Shop was very popular!

Unlike in Jesus' time, both boys and girls learned to write their names in Hebrew in the Synagogue School

No one was too grown up to try a donkey ride!

Making baskets proved a challenge..even for the adults.
Lucky me, I was in the booth next to the bakery, and got to taste every loaf as it came piping hot from the oven.


Some of the older boys are repairing the cutting board broken in the bake shop.
