I did an amazing Sunday school class around the Jewish origins of super powers -- being that many of the original comic book artists were Jewish, and that there are many biblical "superheroes" and of course, the "original" Jewish super-hero of The Golem (which came out of a terrible need in the Ghetto).
Kids were mesmerized. We then talked about Samson, and the need to be humble and to be grateful for your gifts and to use them for GOOD -- it was an amazing and transformative moment in the classroom. It was a key factor in my creating a winning relationship with the students. -- and it is an exercise that I want to repeat!
