We’re getting ready for Vacation Bible School around here. Three Chinos are attending and the other three are helping. Tonight we were driving home and Cole was talking about doing the puppets at VBS. Then he asked me what I was doing.
Me: I’m telling Bible stories.
Cole: What Bible stories are you going to tell?
Me: Well, tomorrow night’s story is about Gideon.
Ben, from the back of the van: I LOVE GIDEON!
Me: Really, Ben, why?
Ben: That story is SO COOL!
Me, a little unsure that Ben really knows who Gideon is: Tell me the story Ben. Tell me why it’s cool.
Ben: Well Gideon is this guy who’s not really that strong, but an angel came to tell him to fight the, um, I can’t remember their names but they’re these bad people…
Me: The Midianites?
Ben: Yeah, them. And Gideon wanted some signs so he put out his fleece and it was dry and everything around it was wet and then the next night the opposite happened. So he went to fight the Midianites but there was too much. So he sent some away but there was still too much. Then finally there was just a little but they went at night and they WON THE ARMY!!
There you go.
I should just let him tell it.
