“Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who has wronged us. And don’t lead us into temptation.” (Luke 11.4)

In the middle of the sanctuary, I created a tree. You can create a tree in any form that you would like. This particular tree was made out of a coat rack and cut branches that was wired and supported by fishing line. The coat rack was wrapped in brown wrapping paper. Each of these stations required the participants to interact with the tree in a variety of ways.
