Vacation Bible School Time
Talk about a money maker - not for the church - but for what I consider the niche market suppliers of Vacation Bible School material. It is always a surprise and shock how much the materials used in Vacation Bible School cost the church and for a small church it can be hard to put a VBS on due to the expense of the material and the shortage of volunteers. Of course this is too a large degree the churches fault. They do not have to go with the theme oriented VBS material that is sold and seems to be the most expensive part of the program. They can just stick to making those witness bracelets and sugar cube crosses, serve a few snacks, and have a little music and Bible study thrown in, with a wrap up on the last night with a hot dog party. Frankly I don't think the kids that attend them care one way or another. Not infrequently they are there because the parents figured it was cheap summer daycare. Vacation Bible School is another event that is part of small town community life - may it live on forever.
Furthermore, if EVERYONE wasn't trying to impress everyone else of their prudence, maybe America would still be able to stomach the thought of buying an AMERICAN auto.
The Toyota Camry is the ULTIMATE POSTER CHILD of those snot nosed "Know it alls" who allow marketing and TV to determine how many pills they MUST TAKE EACH AND EVERY DAY to stay alive...
Another surreal example of just how STUPID "smart" Americans are.
Maybe we should make it LAW that each Sunday American Citizens must go out and wash one another's feet, imagine how much fun it would be, except for you and your family of course.
And what is the TRUE intent of those producing such simple to utilize packages....Maybe through divine intervention, the Sunday school administrators could do something creative and original and "in house", and let the parasites die off.
Reminds me also of the many, many greedy business people who eek themselves into public schools and force kids to sell everything under the sun...How about all of the PIZZA millionaires who pilfer my kids' bookbags to sell their "magical" pizza. STUPID!!!
All them fathers running around telling everyone "surely you will not die if you eat this pizza"!!!
.....That would be sarcasm for those who are in too deep. Attempting to get the free stuffed animal and extra ticket for the blow up rides...Good for you!!!
JESUS IS THE ANSWER!!!
