Under my Thumb

This awesome logo is from here

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Eternal God Triune,

when will your servants learn?

We grow so out of tune,

sometimes we don't discern

on everything: Your fingerprint!

On everyone: Your fingerprint!

O Abba, what could seal

the love poured out from you

onto the potters wheel?

For we have not been true:

So smudged on us: Your fingerprint!

So faint on us: Your fingerprint!

Son of God, Living Word,

you gave us free by grace

what we could not afford.

In you we found God's face.

On you we saw: God's fingerprint!

Clearly we saw: God's fingerprint!

God's Spirit, make us one.

Collect your broken shards,

we're useless on our own!

Create then your collage;

Rebuild again: Your fingerprint!

Make clear on us: Your fingerprint!

Now make us bold to go

for you into the world,

and eagerly make known

the holy Triune Lord.

Good News we share: Your fingerprint!

Good deeds we do: Your fingerprint!

Craft: finger print people


Ink pad




Googly eyes


Ink a finger tip and stamp a fingerprint on the paper. Decorate the finger print to look like a person

Snack: thumbprint cookies
I love the Betty Crocker thumbprint cookie recipe. Its super easy and super yummy!

Game: where in the world is the disciple?

How to play:

World map

Facts about different countries on index cards

One person to be the host

The host asks questions about the particular country

(For example: Australia-it’s a giant island and a continent; the great barrier reef is there; its where you find koalas and kangaroos)

Everyone else takes turns guessing the country. When someone guesses it right, the country gets circled on the map and that person becomes the host.
