Chapel: The Thankful Leper
For Chapel last week, we told the story of The Thankful Leper.
Chapel always begins with music. I don't start this story in costume because it could be scary for some of the preschoolers.
I put my ragged Bible costume on when we begin the story, and I am no longer Miss Rabosky.
My monologue described some of the terrible things that happened to people with leprosy. My skin turned white and blotchy.
My hair turned white and started to fall out in clumps.
It was awful. I had to leave my family and live in the leper colony with other sick people.
But one day, while I was waiting at the city gates with nine of my friends, Jesus healed us! He told us to show ourselves to the priest. I came back to thank Jesus, but I was the only one.
