Meet at McDonald's
This past Sunday my Sunday school girls and I went to McDonald's during Sunday school. What is it about getting together for a meal that's so special? I figured, it's almost Christmas. Let's just do it. Celebrate.
I've been teaching high school girls on Sunday mornings for about 15 years. I had more show up yesterday than I've had all year--plus two new girls.
When we got back to church somebody said, "Did you still teach your lesson?"
Good question. We couldn't sit together at one big table so we lined up in lots of small ones. So, no. I didn't teach a prepared lesson. Instead, I went around to each person and said, "How can I pray for you this week?"
EVERYBODY had something coming up and asked for prayer.
One had a friend commit suicide this past Wednesday.
A few had parents going through a divorce.
Almost everybody has finals next week.
Maybe I did teach a lesson.
Love you much,
