“Hushers” – JAM

A seven-year-old tried to quiet her younger brother during a worship service. “Hush,” she said, “You’re not supposed to talk out loud in church.” The boy looked back defiantly and asked, “Who is going to stop me?” She pointed to the back of the sanctuary at a pair of men standing. “Do you see those men back there? Well, they’re hushers!” It is a marvelous thing to see some of the ideas children come up with. Recently Art Linkletter died and he was a specialist when it came to drawing out what children think. One thing Art believed and I believe also: children belong in church! Come to think of it, adults do too. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
