Packing for the Journey

Children's Day

I believe that the Sunday School teachers who came up with the Kenilworth Union Church Third Grade Bible lessons 90 years ago also thought of life as a journey. They wanted third graders to be prepared for the trip of a lifetime with God. So they made a scripture packing list so that children in this church would know that God was with them wherever they went and so they would be able to remember God is present in every situation. For generations third graders have learned 'The Ten Commandments', 'The 23rd Psalm', 'The Beatitudes', 'The Lord’s Prayer' and 'Jesus’ Greatest Commandment'. The 1950’s version of the packing list also included Psalms 19 and 100.
