Thought for the Day

Heard at a leaders' meeting last night. The task of the Sunday School is to teach children the Laws and Disciplines of the Methodist Church. From a member of the meeting - not a teaching from the front. This was at a tangent to the discussion so there was no comment, but it would have been very interesting to pursue. In my own context, the task of the Sunday School would be to teach children the Bible and to equip them to make life decisions based on Christian principles. Apart from the different source books, the goal is probably pretty much the same.

Hi Jen

I must say that I'm with you on this one - I'd rather my son learnt about the Bible than about L&D. In fact, I hope he doesn't get to even SEE that wretched book until he's at least 20!
