Good Morning, One and All! Hope you had a lovely Sunday, and enjoyed worshipping with God's Family. We had a great day inspite of terrible weather. The weather here is quite a factor, because most people walk to Church. One young lady received Christ as her Saviour last night, so we are satisfied with this week's work.
I have been surprised as I read different blogs, at the idea that good mothers keep their children with them at Church and don't send them to Sunday School. What's wrong with Sunday School?
Well, I 've heard alot. I read about unprepared teachers and problems with other children. I personally loved SS, and I feel that learning Bible stories, especially illustrated ones during childhood, helps the grown-up Bible student learn better. So, what can we do to make our Sunday School better? We must prepare better teachers!
Several years ago, I was given a book called How do I get these kids to listen? by children's evangelist Ed Dunlop. Its published by Sword of the Lord Publishers. It is an interesting book, an easy read. Don't get me wrong, its an easy read, but you learn a lot! We must do our best to reach the children. I personally prefer working with kids rather than adults, because kids have less to un-learn and less emotional baggage.
If you are SS teacher, you'll enjoy this book. If you've ever felt called to teach, you'll enjoy this book. If you aren't a SS teacher, why not? Are you involved in the Lord's work somewhere else? Good! Oh, you're not? Let me encourage you!n Get involved! Help! Serve the Lord!
Have a great day!
