To The Next Generation...

One generation will commend your works to another, and will declare your mighty acts. Psalm 145:4

Wednesday mornings are completely different to every other morning.  We get up early and drag ourselves off to a local school for Open The Book, when in 15-20 minutes we act out a Bible story each week.  The youngest children are only four, we get them to join in as much as possible with sounds and movement, and sometimes phrases.  Some of the older children get roped in too.  We are useless at remembering the words, so we either clutch on to script, or stick them on the back of props. Our acting is over the top, and the children love it!
It is so good to be passing on these stories to the next generation, continuing a tradition dating back to biblical times.
