“This Train Is Bound for Glory,” VBS, Jim Singleton, Identity

Trains were a huge part of my life growing up. I’ll share more about that in a moment, but it helps explain why I was very excited about the theme for Vacation Bible School this week: Rocky Railway. I know that trains do have a lot of power to pull freight and passengers, just like Jesus’ power pulls us through, helping us do hard things and giving us hope. That theme goes really well with our psalm study this summer. Jesus helps us in the midst of our real-life experiences of pain, hurt, disappointment, loss, anger. His power gives us the help, hope, comfort, and strength we need.
