Henry attended VBS (Vacation Bible School) a couple of weeks ago at the church my mom attends. There was a beach theme and he really enjoyed it. He came home singing some of the catchy tunes - "Surfin' through the Scriptures" and "Beach Be-attitudes" were favorites.
He listened carefully to the stories they told him and he was able to partially recite them when he came home. Unsure exactly what he was taking away, as a 3 year old, I asked him if they talked about God in Bible School. "No" he answered.
He did take away some of the lessons whether he agrees with them or not - yesterday he proclaimed - "Mama, sometimes I do not love my neighbor". Well - at least he knows you should!?!
Maybe next summer - "Hiking to the Promised Land" - who knows?
