by Ron Bruner & Dana Kennamer Pemberton
A call for the church—the whole church—to enter into a serious conversation about the spiritual nourishment of our children.
Conversations about children and faith draw us close to the heart of God—among the people of God, these talks are justifiably nuanced and passionate. The authors of Along the Way lead everyone in the church—parents, grandparents, teachers, friends, ministers, and leaders—in a careful yet understandable dialogue about nurturing children spiritually. Along the way, we discover that the individuality of each child and the distinctiveness of their context call us to see each child's walk with God as a unique journey of discovery. We also learn that sharing these paths with children changes and bless us at least as much as it does them.
