This is my comment to a post from another blog who disagreed with glow sticks given to kids at a Christmas eve service and got flack for it:
We handed out glow sticks to all the kids at church. My husband is the pastor and we FIRMLY believe in "Suffer the children to come to ME"
What do you do when your first child is born? Are you quiet? After all the screaming and hard work, the new mom weeps loudly with tears of joy. The father dances like a leprechaun and shouts for joy. Everyone involved is not quiet. Not even the baby!
So having 10 kids dancing in front of the alter (At a baptist church) with glow sticks singing Christmas hymns at the top of their lungs, celebrating THE birth of a first born son is incredibly appropriate!!!
