I visited yet another Orthodox Church this Sunday. The most curious thing I saw (besides the "iconostasis" which was just four easels... the church was actually a borrowed Protestant chapel) was that for the homily, the priest summoned the kids to come up to the the front of the sanctuary before the "iconostasis" to sit around him (who is also sitting down on the ground).
I can sort of see the precedent of this, as Jesus had the little children come to His feet and told His disciples not the refuse them. But is there anything "wrong" with this? Personally, I find it didactically useful as since if the homily is delivered in such a way as speaking to kids, then even adults can understand plainly.
