Our church service normally includes a time when the kids gather at the front of the church and there is a little time just for them. Two weeks ago it began with the gal who was leading asking the question: “Does anyone know what an answering machine does?”
Now you and I will know what an answering machine is, in fact we’ll have a picture in our heads of the little machine that the phone is plugged into…but like typewriters answering machines are a thing of the past. So I was wondering what would the kids say?!!
The first response underlined the leap in technology and the age gap…
“It’s a machine that gives you answers.”
Yup – she has probably never even heard of one let alone seen one!
