14 days to departure - lots to do. D and I spent a bit of time this weekend going through our list of items to purchase, syncing that with expected numbers of kids for each activity and wandering through AC Moore.
Context and culture are significant. This context includes serving kids that have split time between the US and Europe while living in pluralistic, multi-cultural urban centers and serving to make the outsider a priority. Although we could have certainly taken advantage of canned-Bible-school-type material, it seemed to be more important to come up with something ourselves. More important because we can then incorporate such vital elements like global cultures, teachings relevant to pioneer personalities, and our own emphasis on saving mankind. And of course, when you create something out of nothing, it's all you and God on the edge.
