Chalice in Underland

The "clever" title of this post will take more explaining than perhaps it's worth, but I couldn't resist. Today was the last of three PEAK sessions for Suzanna at our church. One of last week's activities to follow our discussion of the sacrament of holy communion was for each child to decorate his/her own paten (the communion plate that holds the bread or wafers)--which, for this craft project, involved using markers on a ceramic plate. One of today's activities was to decorate a chalice (the communion cup), again using markers but this time on a glass water goblet.

We meet for PEAK sessions in a space in the basement, tucked beneath the nave and the narthex. In terms of our church's geography, it would qualify as the under-land of the church proper. No one else calls it that, however; it was just convenient for the Alice in Wonderland allusion in the post's title.

Main point: decorated a glass and wrapped up Suzanna's pre-confirmation class for this year. Have a good Sunday.

  1. I thought that was a very neat activity....I'm just not sure what we're supposed to do with the paten and chalice now...
