If you don’t know it’s broke you can’t fix it.
Can you imagine if we all still had square wheels? I think someone had to come along and say there has got to be a better way.
I had a square wheel moment the other day when I received a shipment of PreSchool curriculum that had flannelgraphs. Flannelgraph, thats right, if it is good enough for June Cleaver it still must be good today. “If it isn’t broke don’t fix it.” I think that sometime in children’s ministry you have to break somethings.
One thing that really bothers me is my son watches The Little Einstein’s, Curious George, The Backyardigans, and Bob The Builder, and goes to church and sees the flannelgraph plan of salvation.
I do want to say that our teachers do a FANTASTIC job the problem is not them it’s me. I haven’t thought outside the curriculum box. But the other day I had a God though, a round wheel moment.
