The sound of a baby crying means that there are parents brave enough to bring their children to church.
It is the sound that parents weighed the inconvenience of packing up their child to giving their child the chance to be with God’s people and being with God’s people won.
It is the sound of a congregation who is willing to hear beyond a cry and hear the sound of opportunity and blessing.
The sound of a baby crying is…
The sound of hope
The sound of faith
The sound of love
From the old and wrinkled hands of Sarah,
the sound of a baby crying meant that God had kept his promise.
From the basket floating among the bulrushes of the Nile,
the sound of a baby crying meant that God had sent a deliverer.
From the humble manger of Bethlehem,
the sound of a baby crying meant that God had sent his son.
For wherever is heard the sound of a baby crying…
There is hope.
There is faith.
There is love.
Of all the sounds in a church, tell me, what is more beautiful than the sound of a baby crying?
