“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1 ESV
If it hasn’t happened for you and your family yet, it is coming. . . the beginning of SUMMER!
Ahhhhhhh, even though there is plenty of “real live” year-round, the break from the school routine can be very welcome! I know it is in my house!
Sunday school, however, continues throughout the Summer. This could be a great time to start a new routine. . . talking about Sunday school during the week. The purpose of sending these thoughts is to bring you up to date on what your children are studying. Maybe you could read the passage from last Sunday as a review. Maybe you could read next week’s passage in preparation. Whatever you do, you are exposing them to God’s Word, and that is always a good thing!
This Week in Sunday School. . .
