Our children’s Vacation Bible School starts next Monday so today is my day to get my ducks in a row and get ready. We are doing the Boomerang Express like all good Baptists so if you have any suggestions or ideas let me know.
Speaking of VBS, I live in the south where that term used to be ubiquitous. Everyone knew about VBS because everyone (even the people who never went to church) would spend at least 1 week, and most of the time several weeks making macaroni pictures and learning Bible stories.
But recently I have met several people, including a few teens who have no clue what you are talking about when you say VBS. Times they are a changing. I just made a flyer to give to someone who asked for more information and I was careful to include what Vacation Bible School is along with directions and times. I think as culture continues to move we in the church will need to reevaluate our terminology and make sure that we are explaining as well as just proclaiming.
