Parents, we are experiencing a time we never would have signed up for. Even though we are seeing a little lightness this summer, it’s been months of unknowns, cancelations, and a constantly moving target of what’s safe to do or not to do. Navigating this uncharted territory can be nerve-racking. Having our kids along for the ride makes for an especially rocky journey.
Sundays have also become something of a challenge. Depending on the age of your kids, and their attention spans, worshiping at home without the normal kid’s programs can be tricky. Life with little ones and getting your kids to be quiet (long enough so you can listen) is no easy task. Some of us are giving up and tuning out. Some of us are saying, “it’s not worth it.”
I’m here to tell you that it is indeed worth it. Staying connected to the community of faith and to God is always worth it. Even if it means watching church online or one more Zoom call. Seeing a face of someone you know can help stave off loneliness, and remind you that God is still there. Remember Hebrews 10:25, and let’s not give up.
