tied to Chrsit

another great missionary object lesson that is also a great family home evening lesson.  

super simple.   you need a picture of Christ that you can hold and enough ties for everyone.   string , yarn or rope will also work but ties are nice because you can tell who is who by the color.

give everyone a thick end of a tie.   you hold all the skinny ends under the picture of Christ.

have each person name something they can do to come closer to Christ.   as they name things like reading scriptures, praying, going to church, obeying commandments, making covenants, taking the sacrament, etc. pull their tie a bit closer to the picture of Christ.   depending on the age of your participants, you can have everyone name 2 - 5 things.

when everyone is up next to the picture, point out that as they grew closer to Christ, they grew closer to each other.
