This week we’re talking about the presence of God with the people of God. They wanted to have a special place to meet with God and to keep the tablets he had made with the things that he had commanded them to do. So a Tabernacle was constructed, this helped the people have a way to come close to the presence of God. How do you come close to God? Where do you feel his presence?

A powerful blessing

The people were blessed with this blessing upon the completion of the Tabernacle, “The Lord bless you and keep you, may his face shine upon you and be gracious to you, the Lord turn his face towards you and give you peace.” This is still a blessing spoken and sung today. Have a listen and think about what most sticks with you? What do you like best about this? Which part makes you feel close to God?

The Ark and the Tent

This video tells the story of the Tabernacle and it is called “The Ark and the Tent.” This story is taken from The Complete Guide to Godly Play Volume 2 by Jerome Berryman.
