I’m not a preachy religious person. I admire and respect other faiths and belief systems. I don’t proselytize. I just have many, many fond memories of growing closer to my God through Bible school and Sunday school and youth group as I was growing up and going through my formative years. One week spent in summer Bible school is one week not spent in front of a screen, playing video games, texting, listening to deafness-inducing music in one’s earbuds, or what-have-you. I enjoy leading story time. It takes me back to my dramatic roots. And Bible stories are helpful to a full Western civilization education.
So I’ve been busy decorating our church, preparing my story time room, and getting things ready for next week’s Bible school.
I hope that you, too, have ways to express yourself and your faith this summer – ways to volunteer to help out where needed – ways to minister to others, young and old – ways to make a difference in others’ lives, however you choose to do so – whether sacred or secular.
Can I get an Amen?
