Several years ago our church in Indiana hosted a “Friend Day.” It was a day to invite all of your friends to Church and they would be treated to a special food tray, then our “best program” and finally they were given a gift before they left. It was a great day and we had a packed house.
After the program I was walking around picking up all the leftover bulletins. One caught my attention. On the front, written obviously in a young child’s pen (maybe age 10-12), was a question addressed to another young person. My heart warmed as I read, “Are you baptized?” My sermon had hit home, even young people are asking questions.
Then I flipped the program over to find another question, “Is your dad at the golf course?”
I often wonder if dad’s influence was far greater than our little worship program.
