On the Sunday after Labor Day, I found myself at an old-fashioned Rally Day at Ebenezer United Church of Christ near Buffalo, NY. It was worship on the church lawn, under a big white tent, dinner on the grounds, and start-up for all the children's Sunday school classes. Kids were everywhere! I visited with many of their teachers - some of whom have been in the classroom for more than 50 years; one twenty-something was picking up teaching for her grandmother, to carry a tradition forward. For all the tired, dead Rally Days out there, Ebenezer still knows how to throw a good fall party and rally the neighbors and their children!
