Sorry to crowd the blogosphere this morning, but I came across this article and it was too good to pass by. This is for all religiously and/or spiritually inclined parents out there (of any ideological stripe). Solid, concise, and clear. Originally written by Rev. Rebecca Kirkpatrick.
When I started this blog about a year ago, I planned to focus on sharing my insights into how parents can and should provide religious nurture for their children. As I have reflected on this past year, I thought it would be helpful to briefly lay out in one post some of the most important things that I have learned as a pastor and a parent who works with families.
Almost all of what I have written relates to one of these ten things that I think parents should know. Once we delve into the details and particulars of different parts of scripture or faith, sometimes these essentials can get lost in the shuffle.
