Endurance Object Lesson

So since the entire High School staff was away at the annual Chi Alpha winter retreat, Tony, Taffy and I led all 4 high school services. Good times! Taffy was speaking on endurance, so we planned a special cool little challenge. A volunteer made a frame that would support some serious weight so we could play a Survivor-esque game – the one where they have to hold an increasing amount of weight off the ground for as long as they can. Basically, as they endured longer, the weight increased.

Had a student hold almost 75 pounds of bottled water for 47 minutes … he was in the background of the teaching the entire service, so it made for two speakers on stage, if you know what I mean. Very fun illustration of “pressing on,” especially as he struggled in his own power for keep the buckets from hitting the ground.
