Next challenge, we as a group had to convince Peter, who looked so much like my teaching partner Jenn but with tremendous fuzzy beard, to go to Jesus and ask for forgiveness for denying him--even though that is hard, The group's compassion and passion for all three classes just touched me.
Typical experience, I learned much, I came away with more than I walked in with. I blessed by 60 medium sized people who love to question and challenge but without any cynicism or sarcasm. I was blessed by a teaching partner who brought wisdom, humor and insight into presenting each lesson. I was blessed by "walkers" who "travel" with each group--they were helpful in practical ways but also participated with joy.
We talked a lot about the 2 jobs we all have (purpose) to love/worship God and Jesus and to love others. We asked ourselves what do we learn about God, about people and what are we supposed to do this this lesson after VBS? We laughed ourselves silly over skits, costumes and props and celebrated with chocolate.
Faith & Fun--it works well together.
