Why Can't I Have A Snack Like Everyone Else?

UncategorizedJared KennedyComment

On Christmas Eve, our family attended at Christmas Eve service with my parents' church in Georgia.  It was the first time that our three year-old daughter had joined us during a communion service.  As we prepared to go forward to the kneeling bench and take the supper, I explained to Rachael that she would need to sit and watch.  She immediately replied, "But I'm hungry.  I want some juice too."  Megan then quickly explained that this is not a snack.  It is a special service to help us remember Jesus's death, and she told Rachael she would be able to participate when she is older.   I was reminded of an excellent position paper by the leadership of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, MN entitled "Why Can't I Have A Snack Like Everyone Else?" I read it again, and I recommend it to you.
