Families of Faith: Widen the Circle

 

Many of us have heard the African proverb: “It takes a village to raise a child.” In African culture this boils down to some extensive sharing of intimate parenting responsibilities among mums, dads, siblings, cousins, uncles, aunts, grandmas, grandpas and even friends. While this may seem like a strange phenomenon to Western culture we can learn a very important faith lesson from the Africans. It says to us that it takes more than just the authentic voices of parents to lead their children to Christ. Forming a living faith in the hearts of the future generations is everybody’s business in a church. Irrespective of age, gender, children or no children we all are somehow burdened by the responsibility of passing on the truth of the gospel to the generations after us. The big question, of course, is how? How do we all do this? Please join us on Sunday morning as we explore this topic and finish of our series on Families of Faith.
