The Corn Stalk....
- Supplies You'll need:

HINT: The more paper the taller the corn Step 3: Take your scroll and flatten (lightly press) half way down.
*A little corn seed
- Step 1: Roll your paper as if making a scroll
- Step 2: Continue to roll scroll leaving approx.1-2 inches and adding another sheet of paper ( about 4 sheets of paper will make a nice size corn stalk).
- Step 3:Take your scroll and flatten (lightly press) half way down - as shown above.
Step 5: It should look like a "T" as shown. Step 6 : Flatten the "T"
Step 7: and cut again the "T" so that when finished it will have 4 sections... It should look like an "X" (or cross shape) as shown below:

"Gospel Magic (we prefer to use the word gospel illusions)" helps to "break the ice" so to speak, as people stand there saying: Wow! How did he do that?!
It then gives you an open opportunity to speak to a group of all ages about the Lord (as both children and adults are fascinated by the tricks).
You can also have someone else passing out gospel tracts to the listeners and those wandering by.
Here are the photos I took last night. I tried to add a slide show, but wasn't able to make it work. This the corn stalk, which we use to show a person who receives the good news of salvation (a seed), then the seed which is planted grows by rain and sun (which we use to represent the Lord, going to church, reading their Bible, etc.) and when we walk with the Lord and follow Him we start to grow (at this point you pull the stalk) and grow and GROW! HINT: The more papers you use the taller your corn grows but the tougher it is to rip (scissors come in handy).
