There is a lot of silliness going on at Vacation Bible school this week.
Believe it or not, there is theology going on in the midst of the madness.
When kids can be silly together, they are more likely to share things that aren’t so silly with one another.
When kids play together, they are more likely to listen to one another.
When grown-ups can engage in the silliness, too, kids are more likely to hear what they’re saying when things get serious.
When people of all ages laugh and play and sing together, they get a glimpse of the Kingdom.
The ability to play is an important part of our spiritual and emotional growth. The power of play should never be underestimated. And its power is being put to good use at First Pres this week.
