In the foreword to Children’s Ministry in the Way of Jesus, John Westerhoff writes:
Transition times are difficult to live in. Old, familiar understandings and ways of doing things are dying, and new understandings and ways have yet to be born. It is for some a pregnant time of hope and opportunity. New understandings and possibilities are waiting to emerge. It is experienced as a time to explore new theologies and new educational theory and practice. For others it is experienced as a time of dislocation and loss……
(we need) to reflect on (our) understanding and practice of Christian education and formation in a new day….
- What is the Spirit saying to the church?
- What are the transition conversations we need to be having?
- How will we know when the new has emerged?
