A Little Child Shall Lead Them- Every Generation Matters
Giving children space and freedom to wonder, to come closer to God and to share the language system of sacred stories, rituals, and prayer is about our deep identity as followers of Christ. Are we willing to do the work to engage children in their spirituality as we are called to do all in our power to support them?
