It has become a familiar scene to me…
Children entering the classroom, their faces displaying a mixture of curiosity and uncertainty. Some are open to discover what lies ahead; others are less enthusiastic. Then there are those who are just not interested.
They’ve heard they will be learning about the Bible and they’ve already formed their impression that it’s dull, boring, and old-fashioned. Definitely not for them.
The best bit is seeing that perception change!
As we tell the stories and the children participate through music and drama, using props, and trying on costumes, the Bible comes alive.
It seems the children do too.
The sullen begin to smile; the disinterested become engaged; the children who thought it wasn’t for them are desperate to participate.
I love to tell the story
because the transformation is beautiful to witness!
