I just have to say that I was really struck by what parents go through to get their little ones to church yesterday. After serving with the 2 year olds (they're so wonderful!), I walked through our children's area to get to big church. I had to wade through parents with babies bundled up in car seats, diaper bags on shoulders, toddlers crying sometimes, and more. It just struck me that these parents maintain a strong commitment to their families being in the presence of God in our church--and that made me grateful for the efforts they put forth to let us love and teach their children.
