Scripture Reading: Let the Children Come to Me
I’m sure every one of us remembers that first week back at school when the first assignment was to write a theme entitled what I did on my summer vacation. So I want you all to get in touch with that. I want you to get in touch with that time in your life when you begin to be aware that there’s really a lot to learn, and we never stop learning. As children we’re more like sponges and we really absorb, at least in theory, a lot of information and learn a lot of things in those formative years. That’s why we’ve recently come to call traditionally what with Sunday school or church school, call it Faith Formation. That’s an appropriate name, Faith Formation. Because it’s the time in your life when you’re beginning to build a faith and to build your life around that faith.
