Child in the middle

Every other Wednesday we teach the base about issues that we learn about in the Children at Risk School. This week the teaching was was on the child in the middle, and who is responsible for taking care of children. We acted it out, and if you look closely, in the middle of the people holding hands, I am the "child."  Around me are the parents, then the extended family, then the community, the church, the government, non profit organizations, and then the global church.  As you can see, the people closest to me are the ideal for taking care of me.  In other worlds, the global church (like missionaries) should be the last possible resort for taking care of the child.
