Children in Church

Training young children to participate in worship is a challenge. Most of the church no longer makes the attempt. I understand the reasons. Toddlers especially seem to be a different category of person! Parents are wearied by their constant movement and leave frustrated, having heard little, and feeling like they have been to a wrestling match rather than to a worship service.

A Burden We Must Bear

It is one of the idols of our age that life should be easy. If something is hard, there must be some way to make it easy, a machine, a pill, a new rule. All breathe narcissism’s deadly air. All my expenses paid; all my dreams realized; none of my decisions judged. Cross me, and I will drop a social media bomb on you. You and your opinions should be erased. Agitated by covetousness and sensuality, this idol becomes a deadly colossus, the moral equivalent of a nuclear bomb upon society. The fallout will suffocate the sunlight of personal liberty, sanity, and peace.
