Do You Remember Vacation Bible School?
‘Oh, the B-I-B-L-E…that’s the book for me….’
That was just one of the songs we learned in Vacation Bible School. In my small hometown, there were several churches offering Bible School and I’d guess each class likely heard Bible stories, prayed with purpose, and made colorful construction paper chains. We’d have Kool Aid in those metal glasses, play so hard on the church lawn,
‘Deep and wide, Deep and wide, There’s a fountain flowing deep and wide…’
‘If you’re happy and you know it, Clap your hands’ [clap, clap]
‘Who did? Who did? Who did swallow Jo-Jo-Jonah?’
‘Jesus loves the little children, all the little children of the world, red and yellow, black and white….’
and who could forget the hit, ‘This Little Light of Mine’…
I hope these songs stick in our heads today…amen!
