There's an interesting conversation going on on Beliefnet, about the wisdom of expecting your children to go to church.
I had no idea that this was such a startling or unreasonable expectation to some, nor that it evoked such strong negative memories in people. Jesus. (Whose name I invoke in the prayerful sense.)
This is truly going to date me as an Old Broad, but -- it just seems that there is a randomness about families with kids these days that I find troubling; a lack of sense of vocation on the part of parents; an idea that God has called them to be more than breadwinners, entertainers and taxi drivers for these little people running around their home.
