My Sunday School Class

Besides writing, one of the other things I do is teach Sunday School. Yesterday I had three girls, some days I only have boys.

As you can tell, there is a variety of ages, but it doesn't seem to matter.

I've been teach Sunday School for years. I keep telling the church council they need to get someone younger than me. I like doing it, telling the stories from the Bible, talking about what they mean today with the kids, letting them come up with some great answers, praying with them about their concerns, and the reward at the end is playing hangman using words and phrases from the lesson.

Yesterday's lesson was from the Old Testament, the story of Barak and Deborah. Not one of those kids knew anyone else named Barak--until I gave them some hints.

It'a great story for girls. Deborah was a judge and God told her to tell Barak to take his Army to fight with the oppressing Army--of course it was much bigger and had iron chariots. Barak was afraid and would only go if she went too. Of course she led the way because if God told her to do it, then he would be right there with her. And of course Barak's Army not only conquered the enemy, but they fled at the sight of Deborah and Barak's Army.

I told the girls probably God sent an Army of angels along too.

Anyway, that's what we talked about yesterday in our Sunday School class.
