I’m late, I know. It is unexpected tardiness, and I hope that you can forgive me!
See, my wife and I are in the middle of a very busy time! We are VBS directors, and VBS started yesterday, and it happens to overlap with preparations for Kids Camp next week. So, busy and overextended are understatements. But let’s focus on VBS right now.
Our VBS is one that probably thousands of churches have used this summer. It’s called Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus. I didn’t grow up as a fan of VBS, which is why it strikes me funny that now I’m tasked with forming a team and successfully implementing one. Last night was our first night, and I must say that it went off wonderfully! Our volunteers were on it! They had energy and the kids followed suit.
The theme for last night was: When I’m Lonely…Jesus Rescues!
Loneliness. Something that I deal with. Maybe you know what I mean? I’m the kind of guy who can be in a room full of people and still feel isolated, unwanted, like a foreigner.
Our Bible Point reminded me that Jesus is always around, even when we don’t see him. He holds us close. He sees us. That kind of reassurance hit me by surprise last night.
Imagine that…an adult getting something out of a kids’ VBS event.
Oh well. Night 2, here we come!
