Little Jonny won’t take long to catch on

Following on from yesterday’s post on Children in gathered worship, here’s a link to Jason Helopoulos’ tips on how to go about helping children worship with the rest of the church.  There’s no rocket-science involved but as I mentioned yesterday imagination and preparation make a world of difference.

In the few years experience we’ve gained in raising our own children, we’ve been repeatedly confronted with the fact that the biggest obstacle to training their hearts is the poor state of our own hearts. And that’s why parenting is so hard at times.

If Monday through Saturday, we as parents aren’t preparing for and passionate about gathering as the church of Jesus Christ come Sunday, why would our children ever be?  If gathered worship is something we endure, little Jonny won’t take long to catch on.

Psalm 122:1
