Elijah, Baal...Merry Christmas!

I just learned that this past Sunday the lesson plan for the children's ministry had them studying 1 Kings 18:1-39, the story of the prophet Elijah (who I happened to dress up as for this year's Harvest Party...see picture). One member of our church named Drew Jones--one of the funniest, most creative and insane people I know--thought that it was very strange to have kids studying Elijah and the prophets of Baal the week before Christmas. So, he took it upon himself to write and perform a song for the kids that both taught the Old Testament story and was appropriate to the Christmas season. Well, I'll let you decide for yourself whether or not what he came up with was appropriate in any sense of the word...But I think it's pretty funny!



(To the tune of "Deck the Halls")

Gather everyone in Israel
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Bring some bulls and prophets of Baal
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Kill the bulls and make an alter
Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
If Baal is god he will not Falter
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Dance like fools don’t be so haughty,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Where is Baal he’s on the Potty
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Thrash around kick up some mud
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Cut yourself and make some blood,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Baal’s an idol nothing real,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Fire came, God made a meal
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Even drenched in lots of water,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
God has spoken start the slaughter
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
