hello world!

Rising above

This page has been formatted for printing.

Items needed

  • a large jar (larger than a quart, like a pickle jar)
  • popped popcorn, enough to fill half of the jar
  • a ping pong ball

Fill up a large jar (larger than a quart, if possible) half way up with popcorn. Take a ping pong ball and push it to the bottom of the popcorn. Put the lid on and swirl the jar around. After a few seconds the ping pong ball will rise to the top of the popcorn.

After you show this demonstration, discuss what habits and traits a person needs to develop that would help them rise above the temptation/trials/evil in their lives.
