This is the TOYBOX TALE that started it all! Several years ago this was the FIRST Toybox tale I ever did (at camp), and the response to it that lasted over a year is what prompted the idea to use this technique for story telling regularly.

Lucy’s Advice

Sunday, September 21st, 2003

Lucy is giving counsel to the various Peanuts characters – and for each – their problems are the result of their sin or something else their fault. A visit from Moses however reveals that sometimes God is working in the lives of those he loves and he gives examples to Lucy from his life and then of each of the others of how God might be working in their lives. She then invites them back for the Good News that their problems are a part of God trying to teach them something.
Based on: Life of Moses and the Exodus
and Romans 8:28

Johnny Proton and the Omega 13

Sunday, September 7th, 2003

Johnny Proton has finally perfected the “Omega 13,” a time-flux-spatial-continuum device that will either annihilate the galaxy, or set time back 13 hours. It can only be used once in the history of the galaxy for a most important purpose…. and it gets used! There is also a Homework Multiplier device and Cloning Ray Gun, but the key point of this tale is found via the Futurama device which helps teach Johnny’s friend that God has a wonderful plan for his life. (The secret to the device is found in Jeremiah 29:11) Based on Moses and his childhood, and how like Moses, God has a plan for each of our lives.
