    I think it’s generally a good idea that babies and small children stay out of most serious social gatherings including church. Haha. That is of course unless church service is boring then sometimes watching the kids is more is interesting. kidding.

    Kidding or not, there is truth in your words. LOL.

    Thanks, Happystuff. Yes, it's a painful situation. This discussion has helped me realize that I need to be pro-active for my own well being and not expect the church leadership or anyone else to do that for me! I will find some place else to be on Sundays. God will be there, wherever that place is.

    At court watching the kids can be fun as well. They are the only people happy to be there.

    It is true that being religious or living a religious life does not require entry into a church building. Too many let that be their entire religious experience and do not live their professed beliefs. You can practice your choices wherever you are located.

    "God will be there, wherever that place is."

    Get out in Nature--if God is anywhere, it's there.
