Never on a Sunday!
A Sunday school is a prison in which children
do penance for the evil conscience of their parents.~H. L. Mencken
The quote has a ring of
truth in it doesn’t it?
How many kids think that way?
I know when I was a kid I thought that way!
Mom and Dad would sleep in, or sit at home in the sunshine, while I got put into my Sunday clothes and sent off to the local
It kind of
felt as if my parents were getting my sister and I out of their lives for a while so that they could enjoy life while we had
to listen to some relatively boring person rehashing stories from the past. Stories that had little to no interest to me.
I would rather have been reading my Superman comics or playing in the mud down at the river.
It was only years later when I had my own kids I realized they
were trying to help us get good “moral” values in life, and perhaps felt inadequate at the job themselves and
so were trying to get the “professionals” to help.
Not that it did anything like that! I never understood Jesus or religion from church.
It was a total waste of time!
With me, I had to get into real trouble and have Jesus give me the option of switching the life I had with the one he
was offering in order to find out who Jesus really was and that he really cared.
I also found out that morals didn’t count
for much. It’s living a life of love for Jesus that counts, and doing things the way he shows me I must do them.
In my mind Sunday school
should be a different experience.
It should be Christian parents frolicking in the sun, sand and water with their kids and taking the moments to ask their
sons and daughter who they think made it all, why it was made and what part do they think they are going to play in the world.
It should be in picking a bible story after they have been greedy that shows greed will cause problems, or when they are scared
that shows courage in truth saved lives, or when they don’t know what to do that shows God makes amazing ways out of
That’s Sunday school!
Dusty dim lit church rooms and projected illustrations
only go so far, fun with friends go only so far.
The true Sunday school is learned in the halls of life.
Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV)
Train up a child in the way he should go,
when he is old he will not depart from it.
