Catherine and I have always felt that there is incalculable benefit in listening to kids and hearing about their interests, worries and joys. So it was with great interest that we read an excellent article by Wayne Stocks (aka Dad in the Middle). He asks the question : “Does Quality Time Always Have to Be Spiritual Time?”
In his article for Ministry-to-Children.com, Wayne writes about the value of talking and listening to kids, whether or not you speak of the gospel.
- What sort of things do kids like to talk about?
- Is ordinary, “non-spiritual” conversation of spiritual value?
- Should we always try to weave in the gospel?
In an account of a recent real-life experience, Wayne answers these questions in a practical way. If you would like to see how relationships can be built and opportunities to bring healing into young lives can be grasped, you can read Wayne’s article here.
