My three young students, all girls, loved to play under the table before Sunday School started. The only problem was getting them to stop playing and sit on their chairs once class began! What to do?
One Sunday as I reached out to God for an answer, the idea came to just go with the flow—to use their play to teach a lesson. So when they would not get out from under the table, I joined them there—and told them the story of Elijah in the cave (see I Kings 19:1–18).
They loved it! For several weeks, class always began with the four of us under the table sharing about the wind and the earthquake and the fire that told nothing about God and the “still small voice” that spoke volumes.
The highlight came one Sunday morning, when one of the little girls asked me dejectedly if we had to go in Elijah’s cave! “No,” I said, “we could just sit on our chairs.” And so we did! What a perfect lesson for both the students and the teacher.
