Talent Meal

Object Lesson

Design the menu so that it would really be difficult eating with only one kind of utensil. The discussion during this meal would focus on talents. Everyone has different talents and gifts. All are valualable at one time or another and we should use and share our talents and acknowledge that they are valuable. A spoon may not seem too important but sometimes you need a spoon, and only a spoon will do. You may not know you have a talent for eating spaghetti with a spoon until you try. Themes to discuss: developing talents takes practice, everyone has different talents, talents may be hidden or unknown, talents are valuable, you may see someone else’s talent and wish to develop that in yourself, you can share your talents with others (give Johnny your spoon for the Jell-o), etc Source: http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Flats/4746/lessons.html, some additions by Jenny Smith
