AWANA

Last fall I started help[ing with the AWANA program at my church. Volunteering my time with the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth graders.
I help out with the “game time”, basically a 20 minute period where we play some simple game that appeals to the kids. I never really thought of myself in that sort of a role, but now that we haven’t been having AWANA (summer vacation) I’m reallying missing it!

The best part of the whole thing is that I’m also learning the same Bible verses the kids are, as I never really had a chance to learn them growing up. Reality is that most of these kids can quote far more verses than I can, we even gave out awards to kids that knew and have quoted 150+ bible verses. I think that’s amazing! I’m slowly memorizing various verses, not to mention trying to actually read the Bible cover to cover.
It’s not like I haven’t read a book that long before, the Lord of the Rings Triolgy I’ve read 2 or 3 times completely and thats got to add up to the size of the Bible… Or the entire Sci-fi Foundation series, thats about 15 books now I think.

I guess the most important part is setting up a time every day and only reading a little bit, the Bible isn’t something I can sit down and read for hours at a time. You need time to digest what you’ve read.
On that note, I think I have some reading to do.
