Jane: Junior High Discovery Hour at Victory Ranch may have been my all-time most embarrassing talk. My theme was don’t break with peer pressure. Everything started out calm and cool. Singing went well: Step by Step, I Cor. 2:5, Psalm 16:11. Then, I taught the Cycle of the Judges and how Samuel obeyed God even with the peer pressure from Eli’s sons and the wickedness of the Jewish people.
Halfway through I put on a bright red apron and became the “Crazy Cook.” I "chopped" up three rubber chickens to add to my soup. Next, I demonstrated how to tell a bad egg from a good egg (the bad will float). Then to illustrate cracking under peer pressure I squeezed one of the bad eggs. I thought the interior would land in the bowl under my hand and lay there and be gross, instead the bad egg erupted 5 feet and the sulphuric black goo hit 5 front row boys.
Never been egging before . . . but cleared those boys out of the room faster than you can say big bad black blast of blecky bilious bleh.
Are you a bad
Egg – would
You crack with
I still had 1/2 hour to teach. After Timothy opened the door to air out the room, I completed the lesson on peer pressure by transitioning with this statement: This smell is how God smells our sin when we fall due to peer pressure.
Thank you for your spiritual and financial support. You are co-laborers alongside us. But please watch out for the Crazy Cook.
