Jesus got angry

A summary of the LCWE2004 from the Friday Fax -
The church also pays far too little attention to children:
one third of the world's population is under 15 years old, but only 10% of
missionary effort is aimed at children. One participant summarized the
situation as follows: whether we hide them away in Sunday Schools, or ignore
the millions of children who suffer in the sex industry, hunger, AIDS or under
child labour, the church has failed. This was also the context of a miracle
during the conference: one speaker shouted 'Jesus became angry' with his
disciples for not allowing children to come to him (Mark 10:14). Just as he
spoke the word 'angry', the electricity failed in the entire building, and the
microphone with it, with a loud bang.

Wow, thats pretty intense.
