My Aunt Jane just made a quick visit to Mama and Daddy’s and brought us one of her famous caramel cakes to share on Christmas Eve. Aunt Jane was my Sunday School teacher for many years at Central Baptist Church in Dixon’s Mills, Alabama. She made the Bible come alive in a dramatic telling of the Scriptures. Aunt Jane would hold her Bible in her hand and would take flannelgraph characters out of the folded pages one at a time. She carefully placed each one on the board behind her. Christmas was a special time when Aunt Jane told us of of how the Savior came to earth as a baby.
It was in her class that I understood – I needed a Savior. The manger story jumped off the pages and into my heart. I’m so thankful for my sweet Aunt who faithfully taught me and many others about Jesus.
Did you have a favorite Sunday school teacher? What made them special?
God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3: 16
