I called the church office this morning to share my experience and how it made us feel as "new people". The secretary on the line thanked me for my observation and explained how important the curriculum was to the children's time and how there shouldn't be any interruptions after a certain time..... (don't forget we were talking about a two year old classroom....) All I could think was, wow, I'm glad that this experience isn't what would make or break my desire for church fellowship. And how sad that "program" comes before people.
(Luckily this is the first experience like this in all of the 32 years of attending church. I know that this experience is not a normal one thus the blog dwelling on it.)
