What I love about Vacation Bible School

Here's what I love about VBS:

Kids love to hear Bible stories, and sing songs about God, and they aren't too sophisticated or too self-conscious to dance.

Lots of people tell me that the children's sermon is their favorite part of a Sunday Service. I know ministers who think that's sort of a subtle slam. I don't take it that way. Guess what? It's often my favorite part, too.

The kids are responsive. They like to participate. They listen intently for short bursts of attention. They are honest about what they think is going on. And they let their feelings show. What's not to like about that?
