Quotes

"After a whole year of collecting small offerings, the Sunday school class was able to raise the $178 needed to purchase a pair of goats through the Presbyterian Giving Catalog . The church wanted there to be some sort of special recognition for their patience and accomplishment, so we planned a “Blessing of the Goats” to be a part of a Sunday service. To make sure the kids wouldn’t forget to come, we told everyone, “It would be very ba-ba-ba-bad if you missed it!”."
Hudson River Presbytery says "children should carry toys!" At the Hudson River Presbytery's " Changing the Conversation Conference ", participants traced our hands to raise awareness and send the message that it's not okay to use children under the age of 18 for soldiers.

Follow Presbyterian efforts to end the use of child soldiers. Like the Presbyterians Say No Child Soldiers Facebook page . Learn more about Presbyterian work to address human trafficking ."
