I am so angry, I have had a horrible response to my post about the pram service. Perhaps the person who read it and spread rumours that children were desecrating grave stones by using them as a toilet would like to rethink what they are saying. I have just received a phone call from a foul mouthed woman phoning on behalf of her mother. Yes, the children did need to wee on the grass at the back of the church yard as we have no toilets, but they certainly did not use graves!
I am more concerned with children actually using the church and feeling at home there. I cannot even repeat here the language used by the complainant.
I can quite understand that a deceased person’s grave is very important to their family and we have no wish to upset anyone. I would also like to say that if a person has committed their life to Jesus Christ they have eternal life with him. Only the remains are in the ground, rather like a butterfly leaving behind it’s chrysalis.
I think we must concentrate on bringing children and young people into our churches, or in these rural communities they will die and the Church will no longer be there .
