  • “A Child, A Photo, A Prompting”
    A while back, I met a 7 year-old child in our Children's Unit. I serve God and individuals as a chaplain at a state mental health hospital. I meet individuals of all ages here, which includes teenagers and adults and geriatrics. There was nothing uncommon about my contact with this girl. I routinely have opportunity to interact with her and other children during our regular Sunday Children’s Chapel Service. We sing children’s worship songs, pray, read and discuss Bible stories together.
