Logos for October 19, 2019--Help! My Child Can't Sit Still In Church--Either tell those parents and their misbehaving children to leave the church or I will no longer come!”, “These children cannot sit still for a moment!”, “I am so distracted with all these noisy children that I can’t focus on the sermon!” Several church members shared these feelings with me, and I understand their frustration.
