McNutt, the chaplain for Thompson Children's Home, which helps kids who've often been removed from their families for abuse or neglect, in his chapel before his weekly Wednesday service. The chapel is filled with artwork and paper chains constructed from childrens' handwritten prayer requests. McNutt says that having their artwork there helps the children to feel that this is their chapel, that they "own" it.  Diedra Laird - dlaird@charlotteobserver.com
