As a part of the “set” during the message, they had a couple of kids on stage playing in the background. Throughout Brandon’s talk, they were quietly playing “Uno,” listening to Ipods, reading books, and gently rolling a ball back and forth.
I suppose if the kids had gotten a little rowdy it would have been distracting, but that’s probably why they had two girls up there! 🙂
It was a cool addition that brought the stage alive during the message with a visual reminder that parenting isn’t just an “academic endeavor.” Seeing real kids in the background while talking about God’s design for parenting was just a great element.
Dug it. I’m definitely filing that idea away for another day. 🙂
Sorry for the blurry photo, but I tried to snap a pic with my phone from the second row without calling attention to myself…
