Vacation Bible School (a week in 2 paragraphs)

Traveling and Talking

I have just returned from a week of VBS at North 56th Street Chapel in Tampa, Fl. I had a great time interacting with the kids and sharing the Grace of God with them. I used Max Lucado's Parable of the River from his book In the Grip of Grace as my big story for the week and weaved in parables like the Prodigal Son, Lost Sheep and the situation in John 8 with the woman caught in sin. I focused on the broken relationships and the fact that God wants to fix those broken relationships. One child said they went home and prayed to God for salvation. And we all rejoice...

The week ended with a modified version of Oscar Wilde's short story The Nightingale and the Rose. I've written an article on it before. This time, I focused on the final song that the nightingale sings of, "the Love that is perfected by Death, of the Love that dies not in the tomb." The love of our Lord Jesus is what motivated his sacrifice on the cross for our sake; to repair that broken relationship.

P.S. I want to give a shout out to +Jonathan Roberts. He is my main illustrator for all new stories. He did an awesome job drawing pictures for my slides. Jon, you rock!
