Today in Sunday School

Click here for additional entries.

Sunday school today was in part about Nehemiah who rebuilt the wall in Jerusalem.  The lesson asked “What impossible task am I facing today? What walls do I have to scale?”  This introduced a discussion of challenges faced and met.  Kunte told of his guitar lessons and how he has progressed.  I told of the challenges of writing a blog when sometimes there is writer’s block and no inspiration seems to come.  Mitch told of a time in college when after studying for an exam, things seem confused.  But after sleeping on it, things got put in place.  We need to be open to the Lord, have trust, and couple that with discipline.  As often happens in Sunday school, the discussion flowed in various directions.  On considering the blessings we have today that were not around 100 years ago, Bill concluded that we are in a renaissance.  But he mentioned that computers still can’t beat chest masters and it was mentioned that they probably won’t until computers can have fun winning and the drive to win—the emotional element.  Mitch said it was only a matter of time.  I mentioned that I thought DNA research and design would be the major development in the next 100 years.  We moved on to the next lesson which was for Joshua 1:5, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” Audrey mentioned that she had been through personal hardships.  Kathy told of her challenge to stay for years in a mental hospital.  Dennis and Kunte mentioned their times in foster homes as youth.  The verse can be viewed differently as you age.  At age 6 you have no concept of mortality—for you or your parents.  As you grow older mortality has greater meaning.  So also, you have experience over time that God will never leave or forsake you.  There is a track record to reference.
