Theological reflection . . . with fifth & sixth graders

Two of the best ways I know to hone theological thinking is to teach children and teach in other cultures. Tonight Jill and start another year of teaching 5th and 6th graders. It's a stretch for me to relate, and it's a challenge for Jill to enter kid world again after a full day with middle schoolers and our own children, but we feel more than ever the call of Jesus to the children: "let the little children come to me."

We're starting a semester on prayer tonight. We'll learn the Lord's Prayer and look at prayers in Psalms and throughout Scripture . . . and practice the power of talking to the Lord together during the classes.

Greg: I am so thankful for your attention to that age group and the level of expectation that you have for them to embrace the power of prayer. They will be truly blessed from getting to hang out with you and Jill. 5th and 6th gradeers are a non-stop challenge but also an unbelievable blessing. Hope to hear more of the challenges and victories. Have a blessed day!
