As far as separate children's church service goes, I actually like the way we do it better. I think there is some value in sitting together as a family in church. That's just my preference though, clearly others feel differently.

I agree, in general we could learn much from other churches regarding Easter (and Christmas).

Easter Sunday wasn’t bad. In my ward, I really liked the hymns that were chosen, (singing is my favorite part of sacrament meeting). We sang “All Glory, Laud, and Honor", "We’ll Sing All Hail to Jesus Name”, and “The Lord is My Shepherd” in that order. It was nice to sing hymns other than “I know That My Redeemer Lives", "He is Risen", “My Redeemer Lives” and "I Believe in Christ", which are usually sung.

I also agree we could learn more from other churches when it comes time to Easter and Christmas.

One thing I wish our church would do on Easter, is have sacrament meeting only and a big program. To me it’s a holiday that’s just as important as Christmas and one of the only few times we get to really focus on the Savior.

Yes. This. So Perfect.

Easter at the jail was great (as is every Sunday at the jail). The opening prayer in our class was offered by an inmate who included the Pledge of Allegiance as part of it. :D

I like this idea too. And less talking and more singing.

So interesting. I can just imagine my eyes popping open when I realized that he was saying the pledge and me thinking "What in the World!?!" :lol:
