Did We Ever Graduate From Children’s Church?
I think the well-intentioned efforts to meet the worship needs of children has contributed to an increasing trend toward a narcissistic faith. The children have their own worship service separate from the adults. The rise of youth-focused programs in the 1930s and 40s eventually contributed to a kind of Christianity lite, today. In many churches today, the point is more about having my needs met rather than cultivating a life of service to God and others for God’s sake.
