In a recent class I help to teach at our Church,
we studied Characters in the Bible who are Leaders.
This is in order to help young people become more cognizant
of the leadership qualities that are hopefully emulated in their lives in the future.
Last night, we studied Pharaoh of the Exodus.
After the study, the young people had the opportunity
to see what it might have been like for the Israelites
to make bricks from Clay and Straw
After a bit of hesitation,
they students dug right in to mix the brick material.
Chad cleverly made a Brick Mold to form the bricks
Patting the brick material into the mold
Imagine how the Israelites must have felt…
being rushed and beaten while making this difficult substance.
Each student made his own brick
Chad made the last touches
on the Tops
of our Egyptian Bricks
The finished Bricks…
just ready for drying
( the stamp reads “Let my People Go”)
The children were able to experience some feelings
of what it might have been like to be slaves
in Egypt during the Pharaoh’s reign.
