I have been a member of, and served in, churches that have fallen off on both sides of the spectrum: On one hand, there is the church with no nursery, no children's church (or worship training) and even the infants are in public worship because (supposedly) that's "what the Bible says." On the other hand, there are the churches where no children under the age of 11 are ever seen in public worship because (supposedly) "they just can't sit still that long;" "kids can't pay attention to a 30 or 40 min. sermon," and "their parents are distracted by them." Like me, most of you have probably rested your ministry somewhere between those two extremes. In other words, you've had to balance without falling to injury! I'd like to share how I've found balance in my ministry between the Biblical ideal of children being under the ministry of the Word in public worship and the practical reality of our cultural perceptions and expectations.
