In a class this morning, I heard this quote:
“We need to stop saying that ‘children are the future of the Church.’ That’s wrong. Children ARE the Church just as much as we and the elderly are the Church. They never ‘become the Church’ – they already are.” – Gary D.K.
A subtle but necessary change in language.
A subtle but necessary change in thought.
How would the Church change if we began to treat children as active, contributing members rather than people who, at some point, finally become part of the Church?
