This Sunday, like the fourth Sunday of every month during the school year, was Family Sunday. The kids learned last week in Sunday school about prayer, so this week they led our prayer in worship, along with a few other leadership roles. We’ve got a great bunch of children and families here growing in faith together. Fantastic, then, that the week’s quote from our national church’s document on worship calls us to celebrate our ministries of education and worship: “Proclamation of the Word includes the public reading of Scripture, preaching, teaching, the celebration of the sacraments, confession and absolution, music, arts, prayers, Christian witness, and service. the congregation’s entire educational ministry participates in the proclamation of the Word.”
Kids are great at real honest “God-talk,” otherwise called “theology.” You’re never too old, too young, or too ‘adult’ to ask questions – or to be part of telling the stories of our faith!
