Time to Move to Rapture Forums

Brothers and Sisters,

Rapture Ready's Bulletin Board is no longer maintained. Members have been moving to Rapture Forum's Bulletin Board Apparently unrepairable bugs in our software after a needed upgrade led to the decision to close Rapture Ready and to encourage members to continue fellowship at Rapture Forums. You'll find an active and vibrant Bulletin Board at Rapture Forums. See you there!

  • A few random quips from kids

    Who needs writers when you have these kids in a ministry?

    We use different colors and call them fruit belts after the fruits of the Spirit, but refer to our leaders by different belt colors. Kyle actually is a white belt but wasn't thinking of that when he said this.
    Robbie was making a comment about something, and Kyle, 9, and 3-4 years younger than most of the kids, said, "I'm a belt Im small enough to go around people's waists."

    Kyle's older brother Josh, meanwhile, on the same outing was holding a small magnifier while outside where we ate at a picnic table, and said, "If you hold this just right, you can really hurt your eyes..." and a split second later said, "OW!" He had, of course, been looking down and shone that magnifier at just the right angle...or the wrong one, actually. He was okay, though, after that momentary shock of doing.. just what he knew it would do.

    Who knows, maybe he did that on purpose to be funny, too. Aftr all, he came up with the following.

    One of the kids at our flag football practice was being really lazy and only likely wanted to be there because his brother and cousin were. Finally, our director asked, "What's wrong, and of course this 10 YO needed an excuse ... now, it's mid-afternoon, of course, but the excuse he comes up with is:
    "It's too early in the morning."
    Obviously he pulled it out from a list in his mind of why he wouldn't want to get up for school or something. The best part, though, was Josh's perfect deadpan, matter-of-fact comment:
    Yeah, it is just after three.

    He said that witha straight face. i don't know how; I found it hard to keep a straight face after that line.
    John 3:16 (KJV) For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.
