Three cheers to Ben Rose (and others of you) who worked out the crossword puzzle in Clue #2 and discovered each line refers to a previous VBS theme, and letters in the blue boxes spell TRUTH.
It now seems obvious that TRUTH definitely has something to do with the theme, but how? Is it part of the title? The subtitle? The Biblical content? The primary Scripture verse? Or, like major clues in previous theme reveals, is merely there to distract you from the real clue?
Remember, in Impossible Clues the obvious is often misleading. You have to go deep into the mind of the clue creator to determine what he really wants you to see.
Speaking of previous themes, did you know that VBS 2016 will be the 20th year since The Wild and Wonderful Good News Stampede - the first of the big VBS themes. Hard to believe it has been 20 years.
Since then we have been on a Quest to the Stars, climbed Mt. Extreme, explored the Amazon, journeyed to London, New York, and on a Ramblin' Road Trip. We have traveled in boats, jeeps, airplanes, outriggers, dog sleds, and horseback. We have explored God's amazing wonders, the archeological splendors of Egypt, and thrilled to the colossal rides of an amusement park.
At times we wonder just how many more themes can there possibly be? But thankfully there is at least one more - and it just may be the best yet. Let's see if you can figure it out by watching Impossible Clue #3.
Obviously the clues are getting easier. I think I may have figured out the TRUTH of Clue #3.
Be sure to join the fun by sharing your guess in the comments section, then sign up in the box below to be entered to win a VBS 2016 Jump Start Kit, Preschool Starter Kit, and Kids Starter Kit! Winners will be announced during the theme reveal party on June 1 - beginning right here at 12:40 CST.
For most of us VBS 2015 is still front and center on our minds. The biggest single week of VBS begins Monday, June 1, so there is much that still needs to be done.
Some of us still have workers to enlist - I must admit I'm still in that camp myself this year - and training opportunities have passed. Not to worry! We have a great last-minute opportunity for you to share with your workers. And the best part, they can be trained for the comfort of their very own homes or the local coffee shop.
