In church-world, we get so caught up in making sure we are teaching children the right answers. We are quick to correct theological views and concepts that we deem as wrong or juvenile.
Affirm [children’s] comments, even if part of what they say lacks theological sophistication. Mistaken theology can be corrected later; the impor- tant thing is that the child under- stands that it’s wonderful for them to have had a meaningful spiritual encounter with God, nature, or people
What do you think? What has been your experience in learning from children?
