Today's class went well. The kids were in their usual lively spirits. At the beginning of the session they started to have real conversations about themselves and at that point the lesson goes on hold and it's talk with them. But we got stuck into Genesis 1:20-31 and the fun ensues.
It never ceases to amaze me that a simple conversation about God creating the sea creatures first goes to smelly breath. Teenagers are great at finding connections in the most random things. No wonder innovative ideas come from the young. They really do think in unique and wonderful ways.
We enjoyed finding out how can boys and girls both be made in the image of God. We had to ask ourselves what does God's image actually mean? They didn't let me down and answered with thoughtful intelligent answers.
The other lesson learnt today is that it's so important to read the bible for yourself. Relying on others can lead to danger.
