Clowns tell about God


Kristīne Pastore
“One must talk to children about spiritual values and God in a language they understand,” thinks Velta Udarska, captain of the Salvation Army corps of Liepaja. So while there is still a warm and sunny weather, the children of Liepaja Salvation Army corps Sunday school were having an interesting evening.
A group of Christian clowns from Talsi were visiting on the playground next to the corps. While performing a variety of shows and stunts, they talked with the children about God and the Christian values, that they should be compassionate and help those who are less fortunate in life, that people who are pushed away, being treated badly or even mocked are doing a lot worse than others, and how noble it is to be generous.
Children enjoyed clown performances with their parents with a smile and joy, sometimes loudly applauding and taking part in conversations. One of the mothers who had come along with her two children later admitted that not all families have so much money to take their children to events that are supposed to be paid for. Therefore, she was happy that such things are happening for free. In addition, it is more rewarding if children also acquire a knowledge which can later be put into practice and communication with other people. “Seeing the joy in the eyes of children, we had the pleasure to have been able to provide a fun and worthwhile afternoon for our Sunday school children,” in a conversation with the Word of Kurzeme said V. Udarska.
