이번 주, 학생들은 나아만 방법에 대해 배웠습니다, 나병을 가진 시리아 군 사령관, 자신의 질병 그를 치유하기 위해 엘리사에게 물어 이​​스라엘 여행 이스라엘 하녀의 조언을했다 (2 왕 5:1-14). 이 여행, 이는 아이의 말과 함께 시작, 두 왕의 참여가 필요:  the King of Aram (central Syria) to approve the commander going to Israel, and the King of Israel to respond to Naaman presenting himself with a letter from the King of Aram asking that Naaman be cured.  Though Naaman was displeased with Elisha sending servants to meet him and the instructions to dip himself in the Jordan river seven times (wondering why not a more dramatic, in-person healing by Elisha himself, or washing in his own kingdom’s perfectly good rivers), he trusted and followed the instructions.  After the seventh dip in the Jordan, Naaman saw that his body was restored with skin like a child, and he believed.

During craft time in the 1st-2nd grade classroom, when the children wondered at the instructions for how to recreate the scene with paper cutouts and stickers, we recalled Naaman’s servantsadvice tojust try!’  They did and marveled at their completed Naaman-in-river creations, Naaman with flesh colored sticker dots covering his wounds and sticker fish leaping in paper waves. As happened for Naaman, the process made much more sense after the end result!
