No Wiggle Room

    So, here’s why my “noisy, active” child and I won’t be using Third’s wonderful new Wiggle Room …

    Yes, I appreciate that my church has set up a quiet place for parents who are worried that their children will disrupt worship for others.

    Yes, I know that The Boy can be pretty disruptive — like when he waves his bright red, VERY well-used hanky over his head for the 27th time.

    And yes, I know I’m not fooling anyone when I grit my teeth and shush him, yet again.

    But I really, really believe that worship, church, is where we bring ourselves just as we are. And let’s face it, most of us are pretty much a mess.

    See you Sunday!

P.S. Just came across this on a Washington Post blog:

MONICA HESSE :

“They should make a small resort hotel where everything on the grounds is set up for lefthanded people. The changes would be so small, but I'd love to move through the world once and see that it was entirely set up for me.”

What change would YOU like to see to move through the world and recognize that the world was entirely set up for you?

Through the Roof

A Blog Supported by the Mosaic ministry of Third Church, ECO

"Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. 4 Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on." (Mark 2:3-4)

About: This is a blog about accessibility, intimacy, and community. About being welcome.  It’s also about bringing up The Boy. He's 10 years old and has cerebral palsy. Also popping up are The TeenGirl, who just turned 13, and The Mom, who is awesome. It's written by The Dad. It's my words, my view. Other people will think differently and have different opinions. Good.
