overheard in my 6th grade guys small group

a special treat this week in the “overheard” series…

    Mardi Gras
    Mediocre Wednesday
    Maundy Grande Thursday
    Black Friday

  4. My Sr High Girls small group last night reminded me of this and I wish I had it on video. Retelling the story of Eve by an 11th grade girl included how god “got busy” and created everything and the nudes in the garden and how the punishment for the serpent was that he could never have sex with Eve (because she thought that was what enmity meant). Oh, and she was called woman because when Adam saw her he said “Whoa, man!” and one of the 9th graders asked at least 5 times if that was true. When I said no she asked if I was sure because it sounded legit to her.
