I’ve been holding little snippets and scenes from our Sunday Funday gathering in my heart and mind this week. There were so many moments when I overheard people caring for one another, encouraging one another, and supporting one another. There were many moments of shared laughter and conversation. I think my favorites, though, were watching people interact with other people’s kids. One of the best things about a church community is the opportunity for friendship and fellowship across generations in a safe, faith-based environment. So much of our time is spent in age-segregated activities. Kids need adults in their lives who are not their parents, who will encourage, listen and guide – and those things all get started with simple, small conversations like the ones I watched and overheard on Sunday. I’m always grateful to get to do church with you – but especially when I have the privilege of watching seeds like these being planted for blessings over the long haul.
