Recently, I spoke to our entire congregation about "How To Talk To Kids About God." It seems that parents and grandparents have mystified the idea of having spiritual conversations about God. They feel that they must have a Bachelor's Degree in Children's Education in order to have the expertise necessary to speak clearly to their children about the things of God.
Unfortunately, we are often to blame. For too long, the Church (and Children's Ministry Leaders specifically) has poised itself as "the official spiritual trainer of children." This is definite far from the Biblical case that I lay out in the introduction of this message.
