What a great second day of the School of Word & Art. Today, we learned about the FALL of humanity. We heard about how Adam and Eve disobeyed God, bringing sin and death into the World. There were some fun snake crafts to help children remember to be wary of the evil one and his lies. As one little girl left, she looked back at me and said, "I learned about Satan today." We also learned from the Bible about how God promised to send a Savior and rescue fallen people. Children's lessons about the devil may seem morbid, but they are important for helping kids learn to see their need for the savior. It was a great day with the kids. One of my favorite parts of the day was sitting with Laura Carr's Older 3 year-olds class and Rachael Schroder's 5 year-olds class rehearsing our memory verse from Psalm 100:1. I think we'll have to all say it together in the opening assembly tomorrow.
I was also really grateful to Hillary Noltemeyter and the SNACK CREW. We had fruit and peanut butter today, and Hillary had a fantastic system for segregating those with peanut allergies into a separate section of the snack area. I'm so thankful for all who serve diligently to keep our children safe!
