Drew came and asked me what "violent" meant. Having just had a FHE on media last night, we did discuss its meaning quite recently. I explained once again that violence is hitting/punching or anything physically mean. Then he walked up to me--looking quite confused--with the Friend magazine open to a primary song--The Lord Needs Valiant Servants. I picked up on his confusion and chuckled while I explained that it was "valiant" not "violent!" Just a small word change sure changes the essence of the song: "The Lord needs 'violent' servants, to do His work in the latter-days. Who follow the teachings of Jesus, and serve His people in a loving way.".......Not quite the effect the song was hoping for.
