Stump the Students...and You?

Each year in school chapel we play "Stump the Students"; I ask each class a question or set of questions about a topic that has come up in chapel during the year and see if they recall the answers. Rarely do I stump a class! Here are some of the questions from the last round; how would you do?

  • What word do we not say during Lent? What language is this? What's another form of the same word and in what language?
  • What is the symbol for Saint Mark?
  • What are at least 4 of the seasons of the church year, and what color goes with each?
  • The hymn "I sing a song of the saints of God" (Hymnal 1982 #293) includes mention of a doctor, a queen, and a soldier. Who are these saints, and where are they in our stained glass windows?
  • Why do we cover the crosses during Lent?
  • In "Bel and the Dragon," a book in the Apocrypha, Daniel proves that the statue of Bel is not a real God. How does he do it?
  • What is one of Mark's favorite words in his gospel?
  • What book of poetry is in our pew racks? How many poems are in it?
If you're stumped by any of these, ask a Saint Mark's student to help you out!
