“God destroys the idols of humanity and puts His kingdom in their place.”
—Pastor Jim Hiner, Jr., during his sermon on Sabbath, April 13, 2013, at the Lake Elmo Seventh-day Adventist Church in Minnesota
My grandson attended a prekindergarten school when he was about 5 years old. One day he came home very perplexed. His mother asked him what the problem was. He answered her with a question: “Mama, who is Richard Stands?”
She said, “I sure don’t know. Where did you hear his name?”
“Every day at school we have to pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States and the republic for Richard Stands,” he replied.
The child had such a weight lifted from his mind after an explanation was given.

Little 3-year-old Harper loves to sing her Sabbath school songs. She is also acquainted with the “beeps” and “dings” of modern household machinery. One day her sweet little voice was heard singing, “Jesus wants me for a sun-beep!”
—Great-Grandma Grace E. Brand, St. Helena, California
We were crossing the Cass Street Bridge as we drove into La Crosse, Wisconsin, when my then 3-year-old son Josiah spoke up from the back seat. He said, “Jesus died in La Crosse, right, Mom?”
—Jen Miller, Winona, Minnesota
