If we're seeking to raise our kids to follow Jesus, it is super important that they understand and value the church.
The church. That alone could be the topic of books upon books (and it is actually). But what we need to talk with our kids about doesn't need to be too complicated. We just need to open the dialogue and get their thoughts for starters. Here are some questions that can be helpful in that.
Do you like where we attend church gatherings?
What do you think about it?
What would you do to improve it?
When you grow up, what sort of church will you connect with?
Is our home church helping you follow Jesus? If yes, how? If not, what can we do to change that?
I've blogged on the church a little before if you're interested.
