Topic: Sunday School (10/25/07)

TITLE: Its Sunday again Father; It’s Sunday again, Son
By Deborah Caruso


“Do you remember in the beginning when you created the heavens and the earth? How on the seventh day after you had ended all the work you had made, you blessed and set apart that day as holy?” Jesus asked the Father.

“Yes, my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, I remember all things.” answered the Father.

“The man and woman who made the deadly error in the garden would have never thought of resting every seventh day. The children of men do not like being still much either, so a day of rest and learning about heaven is very good for them.” stated the Son.

“Amen Son, the seventh day is blessed for all the children of men who keep it holy.” Spoke the Father.

“Don’t you love that song they sing in Sunday school?” asked the Son.

“You mean the one about how I love all the children of the world, and how precious they are in my sight?” Asked the Father.

“Yes, that one.”

“Yes, I do. It is not hard for the children of men to believe that we love them, if they are taught about us when they are young. That’s why I gave them Sunday school teachers! Blessed and happy are the parents that send their children to Sunday school.” Proclaimed the Father.

“Children are so receptive, they haven’t spent much time in the world. But they do tend to be fidgety in Sunday school, and that attention span of theirs can be a real problem for the teachers you gave them down there.” said the Son.

“I am aware of that my Son. The parents also struggle getting the children off to Sunday school. The enemy is always trying to cause them problems when they are trying to get ready to go to church. That snake hates Sunday school. The enemy has learned that when children are trained up in the way they should go while they’re young, he has a much tougher time misleading them when they are older. The parents need to be assured that it’s well worth the fight to get them to church.” spoke the Father.

Jesus then turned and said, “Look Zacchaeus, that class is learning about the time I went into Jericho and you wanted to see who I was. You were so little; you couldn’t see me for all the people that were around me. You climbed right up that sycamore tree to get a better look. You didn’t realize that I could see you, and when I looked up and said Zacchaeus, hurry up and come down, for I’m coming to your house today, you climbed out of that tree fast as lightning.” recalled the Son.

“Children like that story don’t they Jesus?” asked Zacchaeus.

“Yes they do, Zacchaeus, and so do I. The crosses they make when they’re learning about salvation are also very nice. Those little ones are so creative. They got that from our Father you know.” the Son said.

“The angels are most intrigued by the story of salvation, Jesus.” Take a look at little Joey.” Instructed the Father.

A head was bowed, and a little one was kneeling down. With a sincere heart and a gentle voice, the Father and the Son heard the little boy pray this prayer, “Dear Jesus, I believe that you died for my sins, please come into my heart and save me, thank you. Amen.

There was great joy in heaven.

“There go all of the angels again. They always celebrate when they hear that prayer!” remarked the Son.

“Oh how I love Sunday school.” Said the Father.

“So do I.” replied the Son.

What a clever idea--a conversation in heaven!

Some of your punctuation and capitalization of dialogue may need to be edited. For example, this sentence...

“Oh how I love Sunday school.” Said the Father.

...should look like this:

“Oh how I love Sunday school,” said the Father.

There's a comma after the dialogue, and the word "said" is in lower case.

I love the idea that the Father and the Son love Sunday School.

You were very creative with this. After reading this I can imagine some of the conversations between the Son and the Father. Nice writing.

A very creative response to the subject.
