Two women entered my life a few weeks ago. I knew then it was going to be a good thing, and today I found out why! Jeri and Ginger are wonderful women of God, very creative, and absolutely lovers of children. Today was the first day of VBS (Vacation Bible School) that's a joint venture with Beauvoir United Methodist Church. Wow! What a great morning!
Beauvoir is hosting this year, and the two ladies made the morning seamless. Children from two churches came together to... learn, to do arts and crafts, science lessons, and to eat and play. And they didn't care a twit about denomination. They were God's children participating in God's Kingdom.
Ahhh. That'll preach! Jesus said, "Let the children come to me." it's a shame that we have to grow up. It's a shame that doctrine and dogmatics get in the way of being children of God. I like to think that heaven isn't segregated by denominations. Maybe I'm wrong, but the Bible speaks of a time when every knee shall bow, every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. The Scripture does speak of denominations, it simply says "every."
I love kids. I love grownups, too. I especially love it when we gather around God's word for community. I had a great time at VBS today
Thanks, ladies. Thanks Wes and Urs, Betty and Holly, Tim, Judy and Carol for being extra hands in the Kingdom of God. Blessed be!
