The song times are so fun -- we sing a song about the Love Chapter --"Love is kind...." and one about "I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me."
ALL THINGS! The leader says, "even homework?" The kids shout "ALL THINGS!" "EVen chores?" "ALL THINGS!" --and so on.
The Bible indeed teaches good citizenship, faith in God, kindness, and how to be a child of God.
In my class, we worked on our memory verse, Ephesians 4:32, as a rap. And the lesson had to do with accepting others/friendship Badge. The CLC lesson from my leader's guide suggested writing unkind words toward others with a tooth paste tube --I wouldn't let them use anything vulgar (bathroom and bodily function words) --but they came up with plenty of ideas like "Stupid." And then at the end noted that we couldn't put the paste back into the tube by any means. And that saying unkind words and putting people down is just like that. We can't take it back very well --not at all. Those insults are just hanging out there to hurt feelings.
Then we talked about kindness, apology and forgiveness as in their Bible verse:
Brian got the rap noise rhythm going:
"Be ye kind --one toanother --ten-der-hearted--forgivingoneanother --even as God --forChrist'ssakeHath --forgiven--YOU! E---phesians four: thirty-TWO!"
"God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and have eternal life."--the Bible
