A few days ago I asked: What would make church work better for parents with young children?
Today I want to pay tribute to one of the greatest ways a church can minister to families with babies and toddlers. That’s providing nursery care so that parents can worship undistractedly.
Good nursery care doesn’t just happen. I’ve watched one of my sisters develop a nursery program at her church, and I’m friends with women who are responsible for nursery ministries at Bethlehem. It comes by much prayer, planning, time, and the shedding of someone’s blood, sweat, and tears–literally, literally, and literally.
Thank you, Lord, for the brothers and sisters who give themselves for our babies.
