We started off the day, as we have every day, going through the Spring Term devotional and praying for the different teams and our K4 prayer partners. Once we were finished with the devotional, we stocked up on snacks and drinks and started The Return of the King when we were ready. It had many instances of adventure. We had time to talk about the two hallmarks of a good story: truth and feeling. For example, Denethor serves as the steward of Gondor, but when the true king, Aragorn, returns, Denethor doesn’t want to hand over the city to him. It’s a powerful picture of how we often seek to retain control over our own lives instead of handing them over to our King.
Then we were able to put the finishing touches on our Spring Term project. We then had a choice between Wendy’s and Arby’s for lunch, but only one person ate Wendy’s food. Apparently, Arby’s was much more preferable. We chatted about many miscellaneous subjects, from classes we thought about taking to drama club management. Once we went back to the Annex, we finished watching The Return of the King, and what an ending it was! We saw more instances of truth and feeling, and we had time to discuss these instances (another recurring idea was how the Ring was so powerful in its temptation, as sin is in our lives). After we finished, we packed up our projects and snacks. I had a great Spring Term . We all learned a lot about God’s Word and how these Lord of the Rings movies show it!
