PostSubject: Moses and Vacation Bible School   Thu Jul 24, 2014 3:44 pm

This week is Vacation Bible School at my church. We have about 70 - 75 children and more or less 40 adults and teens making all this work.

So, I am dressed up as Moses, and I have a staff, etc. They come for a lesson every day to my "tent."

Yesterday I finished with the lesson and asked if the children had any questions. A girl raised her hand and asked...

Girl: "Hey Moses! Why does it smell like smoking when I stand next to you?"

Me: "Maybe it was the burning bush?"

Girl: "I did not think about the burning bush."

Ah! Now we know what the burning bush was.........a tobacco plant! Wink 
Now was it Virgina or Burley?


Reminds me of Art Linkleter's "Kids say the funniest things"  Wink

The burning leaves in my car as I drove into work would have been Sugar Barrel today.

You could have blamed it on another branch of the church:

Moses was known for his rapier-like wit! I have fond memories of VSB, your kids will as well.
