It’s Sunday morning and the faithful have gathered. This hour tends to get high marks in term of spiritual value. But of the 168 hours in each week, there are some other times that are highly significant in the life of the church. One of those comes Wednesday night when a group of teen moms gather for a meal, a presentation, and an opportunity to be themselves. I have no idea how a person acts like a mom and acts like a teen, but some women from my church are offering Christ-like support for these young women. Two of the women who provide leadership to this ministry just spoke and then received a prayer of commissioning from the pastor.

If Jesus were to visit Hometown Friends Church, I expect he would be more likely to drop in on the teen moms group than to fill a pew Sunday morning.
