Below is a Thank You "recipe" read in the worship service following this year's VBS. It's written by Ms. Trica, the director of VBS. She doesn't include herself in the recipe, but she was the baker that made it all happen!
A recipe full of compassion and love
Keep in mind the more complex recipes that you receive where you need to mix the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients and let it sit overnight…
1st bowl consists of the 1st stop at COMPASSION camp…
A small container consisting of
3 big smiles from Jernee
2 cups of love from Ms. Rebecca
In one bowl that we will label science, we had:
A dash of Ms. Elaine
2 squirts of Kelley
3 tablespoons of Ellen
UMM and I don’t mean the words that helps us stall, I mean the UNITED METHODIST MEN. Showed up!! With
heaping doses of Mr. Tom
Sprinkle and shake of David and a full cup of Mr. Dennis.
In the next container, we have the label craft corner:
2 heaping spoons of Ms. Rita
A half cup of Lilly
And several swords to taste of Ms. Jane
On the side we had Rev. Holimon, Christina, Megan, Markia, and Ms. Marshae who I can’t really name how much we used in the recipe… they like eggs just seemed to fit in where needed and hold things together.
A bowl full of snacks from our VBS snack shack…
2 cups of Ms. Barbara
1/4 cup of Ms. Earnestine
6 dashes of Ms. Diane
3 squirts of Julie
I’m not telling a story… we are getting close to the end of this recipe:
In the Bible storytelling dish:
2 scoops of Ms. Sylvia and
Several dashes to taste of Ms. Robin
We cooked up some of the items on our recreation range and we had to add to those ingredients:
1 cup and a half of Corey
1/4 cup of Kim
Let’s move to our final bowl filled with the ingredients that make us move… our music and movement tray…
2 drops of extract of Markia
2 drops of hint of Leandra
Jonathan, Annika, Feliza , Kaycee , Kendall and Keegan brought some energy to our dish.
Compassion Camp 2023 was a collaborative effort which was a recipe that only God could’ve crafted.
I’m so grateful and thankful to all of the ingredients in our VBS recipe. This recipe was filled with love and dedication wholeheartedly served our community and was amazing to see in action.
In closing, I’d like to share our themes as a reminder to all:
Compassion for all around me
Compassion for myself
Compassion for the world
May God continue to bless us all with wonderful recipes and loving kindness …
Have a happy day!
