The Thankful Leper

Performance: Ignite, Primary Sabbath School, Sydney Olympic Park - March 18, 2017
Brief: n interactive children's story on the 10 Lepers with the key point about being thankful.


Good morning Boys and Girls, I’m going to get your help telling a story this morning.

This is a story that happened not really that long ago, and is told to us in the Bible.

Who here has heard of the Bible? Who here has got a Bible at home?

Well, this story from the Bible is a little bit yucky. A little bit festering. A little bit scabby.

This story is about 10 people who had skin diseases. In the Bible times, when people had a skin disease, do you know what they called it? LLL...

Leap frog? Leopard Cheese?
