|Is this a kid's reaction to children's messages?|
When did we put a restriction on coming forward for the children's messages? Who started to say you're too old for the children's message? I seemed to look so many different junior high youth in the face and get no response. Not willing to go up for a children's message, unwilling to participate in a sermon? As I anticipate that next week we will have some youth that will come up, I still find myself asking about the inclusive and effective nature of children's messages. Are they effective or tradition marching on without question. Are kids waiting and bargaining a day that they don't have to walk up, pleading with parents not this time please. It looked like it on Sunday, but I appreciate the humor of two guys in their 20's just sitting on the floor claiming themselves as children in the name of the Gospel.
