Remember Sunday school growing up? I don’t, really. I went to church a few times as a kid but it was not part of our family ritual. And, as I have shared in previous posts, my dad came over on Sunday’s to pick me up and that was our day together. So, I only heard about Sunday school until we had kids of our own and we got that annual pastoral whuppin about volunteering in the Sunday school or there won’t be any. And, sure enough, it was as I had imagined it would be and didn’t think he had changed much in the 30+ years since I was a kid and heard about it from my friends. We told the typical bible stories like Jonah and the Whale, Noah’s Ark and David and Goliath. We had biblical figures on a stick that moved across a feltboard as we shared the story. And, to keep the little urchins happy until mom and dad picked them up we gave them animal crackers and other assorted snacks. Got ’em all sugared up just before we sent them back to mom and dad. That’s my recollection of Sunday School and church when I was a kid.
On this week’s Legacy journaling project, we move into a new month. If you’ve been following along, we are not into the third month of the project. If this is the first time you’ve stopped by and haven’t heard anything about this, check out the first post on the Leaving a Legacy to your children project and that will help you get caught up. Of course, you don’t have to jam all of the previous weeks questions into a few days. There is freedom in this project to go at your own pace. I’m just the tour guide. Keep your hands and feet inside the trolley at all times, please.
Here is a quick link guide to each of the previous Legacy Project posts if you’re interested
And, here are the questions for this week, focusing on what you did for church and developing your faith when you were younger…:
- If you were to uncover an old toy box in your attic, what toys would you remember most fondly? Why?
- How old were you when you understood that God loves you? How did that affect your life?
- Describe a time in your life when you feel God led you in an unusual way?
Well, that’s it for another week. I’m hoping that you are staying with it and creating something that will be a real gift to your family as you reveal some of the things about you they may not have ever known otherwise. God’s best to you!
