VBS is all about kids and this week has been great. We’ve had about 285 each night. Tonight will be our biggest crowd. We won’t be competing with little league baseball and other community activities tonight. I love VBS because it’s one of the ways we reach kids. And I love the fact that the Childress church goes “all out” for it’s VBS and everything is done first class. I believe that if we want to SERIOUSLY impact the world we live in, we MUST do it through dynamic youth and children ministries. We must reach out to children. They must be a major focus and investment of our churches.
It’s been a very busy week. VBS week always is, but add in to the mix my brother Bruce, and his family, are here for two days from Juneau, Alaska. Bruce preaches for the church in beautiful Juneau. We haven’t got to see Bruce, Amanda and the kids in over a year, so we’ve spent a lot of time this week catching up, talking and laughing.
One of the coolest parts of the week was getting to spend a little time with blogging legend Neva, from Dancing in the Light blogspot, and her husband Ned (or Mrs. Neva as we call him). They came over and taught one of our Bible classes during our VBS. And they also got to eat at a famous restaurant, “The Deuce.” Okay, so maybe it isn’t famous, but it is the Morgan’s favorite restaurant.
See you tomorrow…
PS – I loved the comments to yesterday’s post “10 Signs Your Spending Too Much Time Blogging.” You guys make me laugh. So, anyone for starting a support group?
