On a typical Sunday morning last summer my wife was at her usual guest services position at North Point Church making sure first time guests had reserved seats in the main auditorium while they navigated getting their children to their UpStreet classroom. This particular weekend was a big weekend for the kids because they were to receive their hero bracelets. All month-long the North Pointer kids, grades K thru 5, were learning about the Super Heroes of the Bible and how trusting God is their ultimate super power.
On this Sunday they were to stop by a kiosk on their way into UpStreet to pick up their Super Hero identification bracelets. Unfortunately this Sunday a Mom was running late, really late. She saw my wife’s guest services badge and asked where her daughter should pick up her bracelet. Shari had to tell her that they had all already been handed out. The kindergartners’ eyes filled with tears. Not to be deterred, my wife bent over and said to the sad little girl, “How about this bracelet instead?”
