Sunday School Charlie


I have been concerned about how to effectively communicate to children how what they learn in Sunday School from the Bible can and should make a difference in their day-to-day lives.  Of course, we attempt to do that in the context of every story, but it seemed that the "big picture" was missing. 

I discovered Sunday School Charlie, a series of stories about a boy who loves to attend Sunday School, and proudly wears his Sunday School attendance pin all the time.  Charlie experiences many of the same frustrations that boys and girls do today--problems in his relationships with friends, parents, and frustration in figuring out what God's will really is in his life.  Other children make fun of him from time to time for being a Christian.  And Charlie struggles with doing the right thing...and doesn't always succeed.  Many story segments end with Charlie in his bed at night thinking about what he should do about the problems in his life.  But Charlie has plenty of fun and adventures with his friends, and the situation is always resolved at the end of the story--with Charlie learning that he can trust in God's Word and His care.
