Yesterday several children were dedicated at Bethlehem.
And once again, Pastor Kenny Stokes reminded the congregation that ALL children are gifts, including the ones with disabilities.
Since most children arrive as they are supposed to, without the complications of disability, it would be easy to turn this dedication service into a sentimental, breezy statement about how wonderful children are. I’m so thankful that Pastor Kenny makes this special effort to remind us that God’s purposes are higher than ours, and that all children in every circumstance should be seen as the gifts they are.
I wasn’t fast enough to record him yesterday, but this older recording will give you an idea how he does it.
