there were 16 kids at our second meeting who seemed to enjoy the chalk paint, body paint, hose shower, snack and the now kids club traditional tang (the drink i associate with church when i was a kid).
my longing for kids club was a time and space for our church children to just BE together. it’s settles my soul to watch these children ranging in age from 3-14 find ways to play.
it was fun for me to find these two shots on my camera:
big boy heydon took more pictures than i did…i don’t even know what all the light/flare/reflection is here, but i love it.
i was the only adult for a while, so i didn’t take time for individual napkins, rather a group pile of crackers and watermelon.
sunbathing on the church steps…waving at cars driving by…
this feels like bringing heaven to earth for a moment.
