I have a new blog post in the Patheos Symposium on “Passing on the Faith to the Next Generation.” I hope you’ll click through and see it. Better still it would be fantastic if you left a comment over there so it could gather some interest.
My piece is “A Test Case in Passing on the Faith: The Children’s Sermon” and here’s how it starts:
Kids take the grown ups as their role models in the faith. The grown ups take the minister as theirs. What better test case for how a church is teaching the next generation than the one time each week when the minister talks to kids about the faith: the ubiquitous children’s sermon. I can see some of your eyes rolling, even from here. Hang on…
Possibly just as wonderful as making a comment over at Patheos would be if you would share the post in your favorite social media! You can use my buttons below or the ones you find on the full post.
