On May 24 I had the privilege of hanging out in the nursery with the infants and toddlers.
It was the first time I had spent time in the nursery during a worship service. I had two people tell me it was the first time a pastor had taken nursery duty. I didn't think about it that way, but I thought if I was asking others to take the nursery, I should take my turn.
So, what did I think!
It was fun and I would do it again. Not every week, but I enjoyed playing on the floor, hanging out with the kids, playing with blocks, helping them to share and not getting to stressed out over Joshua and Zachary trying to play with the kids. Fortunately, there were no major episodes of crying, screaming, barfing, pooping . . .
All children left the nursery in one piece and in peace . . . and so did I.
It was fun and I highly recommend it for anyone who can sit on the floor or in a chair and have some hands on time with the young children.
