The art of raising spouses

Shortly after our second child was born, we were at a fundraising event. I was sitting at the back of the hall, having just finished feeding my new-born, when a lady came over to me and said, ‘Oh what a privilege and a blessing to raise a son for the Lord!’ I looked at…

A child was bored!

An elder preceded the minister into the pulpit and then came to the front and addressed the congregation in solemn tones. 'Last week ... a child was bored in the service'. A gasp went through the congregation. Men looked at their feet, women cried quietly, and children went white. 'The church officers are meeting…
