Sweet Victory!

One of my two congregations organized a Sunday School outing during the month of August at a "Family Fun Park" in East Lothian. It wasn't easy - pretending to enjoy myself in the presence of a whole lot of small children and coming down to their level.

It's what Jesus would have done, though.

This is a picture of me pretending to have fun. As you can see I managed reasonably well.

One of the children was trying to go faster than me in his Go-Kart. Duh - I don't think so! You've got to nip this sort of thing in the bud if you're going to maintain order in a congregation.

The reason I get to wear the colourful togs and stand at the front of the Church and talk all the time is because I can drive the Go-Kart faster than you can. No way! Eat my dust, kid!

Well...as long as we are confessing, RR....

I have a great deal of difficulty getting down to their level too---and I have a 6-year-old and teach Sunday School!

And I would SO drive the Go-Kart faster. Is this a time to say "Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned"?

Something forbidding in the set of the jaw there - do you keep that up off the go-kart? ;-)

I rather hope that the gift of holy gentleness will be given me on my 50th birthday (or maybe 60th - I still get a thrill from being hard-bitten).

So, did you offer lessons in humility in the form of "Demolition Derby", or are you saving something to crush their spirits later?
