We were out of town this week, so I had a break from my usual Sunday assignment of teaching the 9 year old Sunday school class. Instead, I spent all of church with adults. It was extremely boring. One benefit of being with the children is that there is a lot more music involved. Another is that kids are awesome and entertaining. Teaching on Sundays reminds me of a lot of the things I enjoyed about my full time teaching days. This year we are studying the Old Testament, and the kids have plenty of random and unexpected things to say that make me smile.
Lesson about the creation:
"I don't know why Heavenly Father had to rest on the seventh day. Jesus did all the work."
Lesson on Adam and Eve:
While I was trying to explain what it means to be created in the image of God
"Does that mean that He has freckles like me?"
Lesson on Noah:
"Wait, was this before the Empire State Building was built?"
"It says that Noah was 600 years old when the flood started, but that can't be true. It's not possible to live that long. He must have eaten only broccoli and eggs."
