Sunday Lesson

Filed under: my world — Kathy @ 1:50 am

My Sunday school students are 13 and 14 years old. I knew when I took the class a few months ago that the potential was there for a disaster. I’d never dealt with that age group except with my own children, and that was just one at a time and wasn’t so easy. I worried about it. Could I keep order? Could I hold their attention? Could I get them to learn anything? I was worried, oh yes I was. Better teachers than me have been driven away by teenage gangs dressed in their Sunday best. So here below are the little rascals, those who were on time to class today. What do you think, sassy or sweet?


Since it is Sunday I’m not going to fib. These kids are Sunday School poster child material. Nice, happy kids. Not that they don’t have their challenges: divorced parents, family tragedy, shyness, insecurity and generally figuring out who they are. Things you’d expect, and then some pretty unusual challenges too. But in class they are respectful and involved. So I like them. Really, I kind of love them. Which, after all, is what Sunday school is all about.



  1. They look like a nice bunch of kids! I’m sure you’ll be fine.

    Ha ha ha! But who wouldn’t love you, Kath? It is no wonder they are so well behaved.
