Let the Children Come

I was thrilled to get to attend a play put on by Kaedyn's kindergarten class this past week.  The children filed into the school chapel early and I was amazed at how orderly and quiet they were as they waited for all the elementary classes to come in.

Then some of the kindergarteners began to sing spontaneously, "God's not dead. He's surely alive, and He's living on the inside, roaring like a lion!" Soon the staff and audience were singing along.

If you know me, you wouldn't be surprised to see that I was moved to tears. After teaching in public schools in recent years, I am so grateful for an atmosphere where the children can freely pray and worship God.

Fittingly, the Bible verse they recited from memory was Mark 10:14
Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
