If you are interested in children’s ministry or if your church has “children’s church” or “children’s sermons,” you might want to read Let the Children Come by William Willimon from his blog, A Peculiar Prophet.
In the article he raises several questions we need to consider. Among them: Are our “children’s sermons” really for the children? Do our children’s sermons put the children on display with an embarrassing “kids say the darnedest things routine” designed to entertain adults at the expense of the children?
I am thankful for the questions Willimon raises and the wisdom he shares.
I have some rethinking to do.
