Good on french fries

February 3, 2014


First, let me tell you that if Brad doesn’t have a post up today, it’s because stuff is broken and Lloyd hasn’t fixed it yet.

Ok, on to the story. So, I have a boy in my class who has apparently been watching some Bible movies that show the more grizzly parts of the Old Testament, and it fascinates him. Last week at Jesus time we were having a lovely retelling of Jesus and the little children, when Ben pipes up with, “I saw a Bible movie and Abraham had to kill his kid. God told him to kill his kid. He was gonna kill his kid, but he didn’t.” I made a quick swipe at, “Yes, there are some weird things in the Bible – let’s get back to Jesus” and we moved on.

Today at breakfast, he started up with “I saw a Bible movie..” and I braced myself. “There was this town that was really bad. It was really bad so God threw rocks of fire on it. And there was this lady and God told her not to look at the town but she did it anyway and God turned her into a packet of salt.”

I choked down my cereal. Yep. There are some weird things in the Bible.

    How about the story of Ehud for today’s lesson? (Judges 3:12-30)

    I love packets of salt like that. I think it tastes fundamentally different than any other salt on the market. I have no idea why.

    A packet of salt would have been handier.
