ACTUAL MESSAGE INSIDE:
DON'T FORGET SUNDAY SCHOOL! By Rodney L. Pry P.S.S.S.A. Executive Director I admit it! There are times when I can be quite forgetful. For example, sometimes I forget to take my vitamin pills each morning. When I don't take a list, I often forget something that my wife wants me to pick up at the store. And, I've even walked from one room to another and when I get there, I can't remember why I was going there. I tell myself that my forgetfulness is just a part of getting older or maybe it's because I'm too busy and am trying to do too many different things at once. And, I take comfort in seeing that I'm certainly not alone. I have friends that seem to be even more forgetful than I am. The truth is, we all forget a lot of things. And, if we didn't have date books and "to do" lists, we'd probably do even worse. There are many different things that I might forget, but there's one thing that I don't ever want to forget and that is SUNDAY SCHOOL! I don't want to forget Sunday school because it is one of the most important parts of my week. Even when I was a small child, going to Sunday school was as much of a part of my life as my sisters and me going to school and my father going to work. And, since I was married over 30 years ago, going to Sunday school each week has continued to be a foundational part of our family's weekly activities. I guess you could say that Sunday school has become a habit for me (a very good habit, for sure), but it's so much more than just a habit. I enjoy going to Sunday school and look forward to gathering with other Christians to study God's Word each week. I guess I would really list five different reasons why I don't want to forget Sunday school. First, I enjoy learning more about God, His Word and His will for my life. The Bible is our "handbook for life" and I want to learn all that I can about the many messages that it contains and the central character of the book, Jesus Christ. Second, I enjoy the way you study the Bible in Sunday school. In Sunday school, you can ask questions, discuss, share insights and experiences as together we dig deeper into God's Word. Third, I like the fact that, in Sunday school, people are taught according to their age, education and interests. This is especially important for children, but it also means that persons of all ages can learn about the real world problems and concerns that they face. Fourth, I enjoy being with other Christians. It's important for all Christians to develop close supportive relationships and friendships with other Christians, and Sunday school is one of the best places for these relationships to develop. And, fifth, I enjoy the opportunities for service that are found in Sunday school. Through Sunday school, I can serve God and others. Remembering all that Jesus Christ has done for me, it's important for me to do even more for him. Yes, I believe that Sunday school is as important today as ever, and I believe that it is important for all persons of all ages to be in Sunday school each week! I don't ever want to forget Sunday school. What about you? DON'T FORGET SUNDAY SCHOOL! "Call together all the men, women and children...so that everyone may hear God's Word...and learn to obey His teachings faithfully."
