Having our kids in church

I really liked this article. It was a great reminder to me as a parent of children who make "little" noises during church. I laughed out loud as I read this in the second paragraph:

I’ve said prayers like this: “Our Father who art in . . . ssshh! Put that down . . . thy kingdom come, thy will . . . no, don’t color on that . . . Give us this day . . . ssshh! I said. . . .”

But, we love the interuptions that kids create because it means that they are in the service with us and being formed by the liturgy with us (just like Lauren Winner said in her quote in my last post).
