    Our theme, Jesus & Me, was based on the books Wonder, Auggie & Me and 365 Days of Wonder written by R.J. Palacio.  If you haven’t had a chance to read them, we encourage you to do so!  She has also written a book for younger readers titled We’re All Wonders.  These books inspired a move to Choose Kind, teaching empathy, compassion and acceptance.  In the story, the children learn from a favorite teacher about precepts (rules for very important things, mottos, famous quotes and things to help motivate and guide us).  We decided to take the week of VBC to teach our kids three precepts:
        
    Precept 1:
    You should treat people in the same way that you want people to treat you.  Matthew 7:12

    Precept 2:
    “I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”  Psalm 139:14

    Precept 3:
    Do all the good you can,
    By all the means you can,
    In all the ways you can,
    In all the places you can,
    At all the times you can,
    To all the people you can,
    As long as you ever can.
        -Commonly known as John Wesley’s Rule
