There’s a line drawn down the middle of the room. Step up to the line if you ever …*

  • Heard God call, but hurried on with “life”.
  • Spent more time in prayer asking God for things than asking God what He wanted for you or your loved one.
  • Put up walls to keep others (and God) out.
  • Forgot to say “thank you.”
  • Were tempted to go out and get what the Jones’s have, even if you didn’t need it and couldn’t afford it.
  • Thought of self, before thinking of others.
  • Hurt somebody.
  • Ran away from the very thing needed most.

There’s an altar. Come kneel before your God in humble submission.

  • Here I am. I wait.
  • I’m listening.
  • Heal the hurt.
  • Thank you.
  • All I have belongs to You.
  • Here is my neighbor; I love as I love myself.
  • I’m sorry.
  • Here I am.

Hear God’s response: You are forgiven.*This is the concept of the “Line Game” introduced in the movie, Freedom Writers, which we wrote about recently.
