In our new series, “Scars” which started this weekend, we talked about the scars each one of us carries – both visible and invisible. The message clearly explained the meaning of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and how His scars can heal our deepest wounds, “once and for all.” To create an interactive/participatory moment in the message, we included cut-out hands in everyone’s program. We created a moment where we had everyone write their own personal scar on the paper hand.
Then we had them get up and physically take them (hundreds of people at every service) and pin them on a board at the front of the auditorium. To literally give them to Jesus. It was a powerful moment, and a beautiful start to the series.
