stories and memories

Once upon a time, I taught Sunday School year-round for 12 years.  Karl helped me too.  The last 15 minutes of class, I read books by Madeleine L’Engle and C.S. Lewis to the class.  We had a box of art supplies and the children could create as they listened.  Our discussions ranged from the formal curriculum to God caring when their feelings were hurt.  A few students have stayed in touch.  My main goal was for them to feel comfortable with their Bibles, so they could read and ask their own questions.  They did not have to read aloud or say anything, if they were not comfortable.  Reading and skill levels varied.

On my Easter site this week, I posted one of Charles A. Waugaman’s very best poems:  ‘Good’ As In Friday.  I read this poem year-round.

On this site, there is an Easter poem by Charles in the Pages.  This is a picture of a card he made, with one of his paintings.  “Hope Will Not Cease.”

  1. Dear Ellen, I’ve also noticed that reading skill levels vary greatly within the same age group. How kind of you to make your class a safe and loving place.
