June 14, 2015 – Children’s Sunday Reflections

Reflections on Sunday School – Susan Goux I’m going to tell you a little bit about Sunday School and a little bit about me. When I was a child Sunday School was a family affair: my mother taught Sunday School and my brother, my father and I went to Sunday School. In Sunday School we learned and listened and played games and made friends.   The kids went to church camp together in the summer. Each week after Sunday School we went to church to worship. In summers I went to visit my grandmother and my aunt taught Sunday school, directed the children’s choir and everyone went to church. In fact when the children went to their Sunday School classrooms, the sanctuary of their church was divided into several sections and each was a different Sunday school area for adults. Then everyone gathered together for worship. As I got older and had children of my own, I taught a Sunday School class for High School students for many years. We had a lot of fun. My children were in the class and they even brought some of their friends with them so they could share the fun. We read the Bible and learned the stories., sometimes acting our the stories or trying out the food we read about to better connect with the words on the page. Then we talked about what it all meant to us. We also ate donuts and laughed and had a great time. The Sunday School had wonderful children’s day programs and Christmas Eve pageants. These are the things we did in Sunday School. But what did I actually learn in Sunday School? I’ve thought a lot about why I should go to school on Sunday. Here’s how my thinking had evolved. Why do you go to school? To learn to read, write and how to put information together to think and apply to different situations, to learn what others have written down so we have a better understanding of the world around us – to learn things to help us as we live our lives and get jobs – it’s about what do you want to do when you grow up? Do you want to be a teacher, a plumber, a minister, a musician, a pilot, a computer game designer? Working hard in school will help you get the job you dream about. Sunday school is the really the same – you read about God and Jesus, and Saul and Ruth and David and Mary all the people in the Bible and you learn from the stories of these people things that happened long ago. When you read these stories and talk about what they mean, you start thinking about what this means to you. What happened to them and was that what you wanted to happen to you? What would you do in the situations they find themselves in? Who do you want to be when you grow up? Hopefully you want to be kind, generous, happy and full of joy with friends and family to care about you even when things do go just according to plan. Can the things you learn in Sunday School help you become the person that you want to be? One day I was thinking very hard...
