VBS 2016 will go down as the year Pastor Annette didn’t burn the building down. I was the last to leave Vacation Bible School set-up Sunday afternoon. “Let me get tomorrow’s dessert out of the oven and I’ll lock up,” I told my excellent 12-year-old kitchen assistant. The chocolate raspberry crumb bars looked and smelled perfect. I turned off the oven and set the pan on the stovetop to cool overnight, not noticing the burner still on beneath it. The retired men’s group arrived a few minutes before me Monday morning. They had already opened the windows and cleared the smoke. Some people think it smells terrible. Compared to, say, six thousand square feet of smoldering ash, I think it smells wonderful.
Summing up: the church didn’t burn down, the Soto house is going up, and kids are streaming in to Bible School every evening. Summer 2016 is shaping up just fine at University Baptist Church. I pray the same for you and yours!
