Do your kids get jealous? Today in Sunday School, our children will study the story of “Cain and Abel” which tells about the first case murder caused by jealousy. Consider discussing, “How does jealously affect relationships in a family? Why is it important to forgive each other in our family?
Today our children will study the Scripture’s account, “Sin Enters the World” as the devil tempted Adam and Eve to sin. With the fall into sin came God’s punishment of death . . . but also His promise of a Savior. You might discuss, “How does sin affect us as a family? How does God’s promise of a Savior give us comfort?”
Today in Sunday School, our students will hear how “God Creates Adam and Eve.” including providing them with perfect physical attributes and a lush garden in which to live. God created the world’s many natural resources so it would be a wonderful place for His most treasured creation, human beings, to live. Parents might ask, “How were Adam and Eve different from the rest of God’s creation?”
In our mid-week Bible study on Wednesdays (starts September 10 @ 10:30), and then again for a couple of evenings sometime later this Fall, I would like to re-introduce you to Jesus and the Sacraments in the Gospel of John. What? There are no “words of institution” in John, you say? “And Baptism is only discussed one time in John 3 right?” That’s true but Lutherans have been a bit sideways on this topic for a long time (reasons we’ll discuss) even though the words and works of Jesus supply significant testimony to both.

Consider asking, “How did God create the world? What is your favorite part of God’s creation?”
