Bible Lessons From the Land of Ur

In Sunday School we were learning about Abraham, way back when his name was just plain Abram. We learned that God told him to leave the Land of Ur and move his family and belongings to a new place. A strange, foreign place that was as yet unnamed by God.

The kids were fascinated that God would move him out of Ur. Being the Land of Pirates, it must be uber fun. (After all, it's not that far a stretch in a first grader's mind to jump from 'Urrrr, me Mateys' to 'Arrrrrr, me Mateys.') The kids spent the rest of class with their pointer finger crooked into a hook.

So there you have it. The first and only Biblical account of Pirates.

How cute! Isn't it funny how kids think pirates are fun and games but really they are the bad guys? Weird how we've managed to glamorize them huh? LOL!

You know, my husband is stationed at Ur right now. I'm wondering if I should mail him an eye patch?
