Baby Therapy

ISAIAH 11:6 As someone who does not have children- I am always a little wary writing about these little ones . After all I am not the one waking up at all hours of the night to feed- comfort and soothe. I am not the one trying to juggle getting a shower for the first time in days while the soundtrack of screams comes from the other room.

here Parents- you do incredible- superhuman tasks as you care for these little bundles of joy and terrorists of time- and honestly- while I know I have nothing to do with this equation I am so grateful. Parents you do this courageous incredible act bringing little ones into the world and so often you are given an unfair story that it is now all on YOU!

See while you want five minuets to think- I am desperately hungry for five minuets of cooing and even crying. Holding your child blesses me in ways that you cannot even imagine- as they remind me of what is truly important in this life- as the worries and anxieties the to-do’s and haven’t done’s slip away in the rocking- your child teaches me about hope and joy- pure pleasure in the simple and silly. So when I offer to help please don’t feel guilt- because in being with your child I get to feel the love of God and they teach me lessons- and they help me see miracles. And maybe one day in the future you can do the same for me- and maybe in this small way we get to life into what beloved community looks like.

Yet each night a child is born is a holy night.

Fathers and mothers—sitting beside their children’s cribs—

feel glory in the sight of a new life beginning.

They ask, “Where and how will this new life end?

Or will it ever end?”

Each night a child is born is a holy night—

A time for singing,

A time for wondering,

A time for worshipping.

    I can’t think you enough for reaching out to us as our pastor, offering the clarity of thoughtful reflection that has helped me for one, to sort through the chaos of this most horrible event. Your observation about the distance between the shooter and the target graphically and accurately assessed the nature of the shooting as being far less mpersonal than other mass shootings. His victims must have appeared as ants or perhaps even less than ants, just shooting targets.. I fear for the future and “copy-cat” efforts. And yes, we do need to come closer and recapture a sense of empathy and compassion, two qualities that have been eroded away by the force of the waves of social media, distant and impersonal/instant one-way communication with significant delay in response if not even no response at all. SAD!

    Pastor Seth,

    Thank you so much for your words of comfort at this sad, frightening time. Your words, both spoken and written, have touched me many times in the past. I, too, am thankful for my church family, where we can be uplifted and comforted.

    Pastor Seth ~

    This is such a sad time in all of our lives. There are people out there that hugged and kissed a loved one for the last time on Sunday evening, not knowing it was the last time. We should love everyone like it’s our last day here on earth. Unfortunately we don’t do that on a daily basis. We get too caught up in life until someone evil shows their “face” to the world and we again hug and kiss our loved ones. I have always wondered is there evil in the world or is it mental illness?

    How do we know if someone is truly evil or mentally ill. This is one of the things that scares me the most. Everyone automatically thinks, Oh, he was mentally ill, but was he? This is the one thing that I question in life, is evil among us. It truly scares me to think there is evil but we see it in the news everyday not just Sunday evening.

    Like you said, it’s like a window to hell opened and it is staying open……but why? Are we being tested by one side and pushed by the other?
