This post is about something very simple. Early in my ministry, I heard of a child who was deeply influenced by a minister who got on one knee to shake her hand at the Church door. After that, I often got on one knee to talk to a child, or to speak to the elderly if they were seated. It is more than that, though. It is, in general, being with people rather than over against them. OBSERVATION: Kneeling is a bit painful for me, as I have injured both knees. There's broken bone floating in one of them -- only I don't know which one, as I don't know which X-ray is which.
