**Note: This post was left unfinished in October, but this morning as I finally took a moment and had a new thought to blog about I found it in my draft box. When I saw these pictures it brought back memories of this great moment. We are preparing for another such moment at our church on Monday. I promise to share reflections on our Martin Luther King Day Munch more quickly.***
Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children. – Alex Haley
Do you believe in Magic? I saw magic yesterday. I saw children who we typically isolate into homogeneous age groupings making friends with people 10x their age. I saw seniors reading books to captivated children. On this day I saw God’s intention for the church: one generation bringing another along, telling them the stories of their life, incorporating them in to the community. What a blessing.
Everyone needs to have access both to grandparents and grandchildren in order to be a full human being. – Margaret Meed
