A Sunday School Christmas Project

I don't think there is any better work than Christian education. I always get back ten times more than I give.

One year the Diocese asked the Sunday Schools to make and send ornaments to decorate the big Christmas tree in the cathedral in New York City. Our Sunday School decided to make oil-based painted glass ornaments. Every child did one, and they turned out beautifully. But, as we were finishing up, there was paint everywhere. I had paint all over me. The kids were running around like maniacs. Standing in the middle of the huge mess I thought, "Why do I do this to myself?"

As I was thinking that, one of the little girls came up to me, tugged on my skirt, and said, "Thank you, Ms. Lauren. This was so much fun."
