This morning we had two classes up and running both with a goodly quorum. Can one do five minutes a week with two classes?
The older class are doing parables for the next several weeks. Several of them have never had a lesson in Hebrew, so to give them just a little digging into the Old Testament, I chose Proverbs 1:6 as a verse to frame the sayings and I spelled out the word משלים (moshalim). Next week I will do more with Psalms - maybe psalm 78. The OT is full of parables, stories as parable, proverbs and dark sayings. Job, for example, is parable. Parable is not new in the NT.
In the younger class - aged 3 to 9 we sang the shema and they sang it beautifully. I am really impressed with these young voices.
