Raising Faithful Children, Sundays Oct. 14 and 21
October 21 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am EDT
By Rev. Adam D. Gorman and Rebekah McLeod Hutto
Whether you are raising a preschooler, elementary aged child, teenagers, or working on your own faith disciplines, it is never too early or too late to develop lasting spiritual practices. Children develop faith and tradition based on their parent’s practices, but we all have a lot to learn from one another, regardless of age. This October Rev. Gorman and Rev. Hutto look forward to starting conversations with our congregation on spiritual practices that will help build a “sticky faith” in children and youth. Sunday October 14 and Sunday October 21 they will lead discussions appropriate for all ages, that will discuss best practices and traditions that build spiritual maturity and can help set students on a trajectory of lifelong faith and service.
Rev. Hutto will lead Sunday October 14, discussing early childhood faith and spiritual questions children begin to wrestle with in the elementary years. Rev. Gorman will lead Sunday October 21st as the conversation shifts to adolescence and young adulthood. Hutto and Gorman will be present in both sessions to answer questions and deepen the conversation for all of us, regardless if we have children. They look forward to reinvigorating, inspiring, and adding new spiritual practices to all of our spiritual lives.
