This is a continuation of my Sunday posts called Quotes and Quips. This week, Children’s Answers to Sunday School Questions. Most of these were saved by my mother-in-law in a notebook full of cute sayings. Some of us remember the days of Sunday School growing up, and sooner or later we had to actually learn something. Here is a list of “answers” that kids gave in Sunday School (you will have to figure out the questions (date is from around 1990).
