Not long after I published my post “Children as Part of the Church Gathering,” I started getting pings (notifications) that people were linking to the post. (Thank you very much, by the way!) I got notifications from Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, and several other services.
Within 30 hours, that post has become the most read post that I’ve written this year. It may reach my top 10 most read posts of all time soon, if people keep reading it. (This is a little strange – and encouraging – because most of my top read posts are about leadership and salaries.)
But, I’m wondering… why are people interested in that post? I have a few ideas, but I’d love to hear from you. If you are a regular reader or if you are a first-time visitor who followed someone’s link to that post about children, would you please share with me why you think people (yourself and/or others) are interested in the topic of including children in the church gathering?
