Catechising Kids

One of the really helpful features of the New City Catechism is that it has been developed with both children and adults in mind.  For example, the first question and answer

Q. What is our only hope in life and death?

A. That we are not our own but belong, body and soul, both in life and death, to God and to our Saviour Jesus Christ.

The bold parts of each answer are meant for young children to learn (I wonder how old before graduating onto the whole answer?).

I’m looking forward to starting these with at least some of our children later this week.

Kathy Keller talks about catechism with kids – the reasons, joys and pitfalls on  the other side of this link.
