I teach the preschool Sunday School class on Sunday mornings. This is something that I have enjoyed doing the last six months or so and it has taught me a lot. Hopefully the kids have learned something too!
Before our lesson I always lead a little song time with them… You know the fun songs; B-I-B-L-E, The Lord’s Army, Jesus Loves Me. Nothing complicated, we don’t even have music with it.
Well, our Children’s Pastor asked if we would sing in “Big Church” last Sunday. “Sure, that would be fun!” I said. I got the kids ready with three songs and we practiced for a few Sunday’s.
The big Sunday arrived.
I woke up with terrible allergy problems. Texas sized allergies!!! My head was stuffed up, my eyes itched; you know normal Spring in Texas! I got ready for church through a myriad of sneezing and coughing and a whole lot of coffee guzzling.
We practiced during Sunday School and I was impressed. I clearly have the smartest class in the church. All six of the preschoolers were singing and doing the hand motions I had taught them. We were going to knock the socks off of everybody sitting in the pews.
We rode the elevator upstairs to the sanctuary and marched up the aisle. Then we had to get on stage. That is when I knew that my class might not perform quite as well as they had in class.
We started with “The B-I-B-L-E” while one student wandered around the stage the rest kind of whispered the song. I think I was the only one singing during “The Lord’s Army.” During “Jesus Loves Me” one little boy spotted his dad and bursts out with, “Hey there’s my dad. Do you see him? He’s right there! Hi Daddy!!!! Hi!!!”
So the moral of the story is, always have your Iphone so you can video these kinds of things.
