Jesus Said: Let the Children Come to Me

A Wild Goose Workshop: Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.”So why do we—as people of faith and spirit, as people who seek the community of God, as those who long to enter the community of heaven here on earth—hush, excuse, or domesticate children? Is it possible to be people of faith if we do not allow children and the childlike to inform our theology?Andrea will be joined by her children, Laine, Annabel, Oliver, and Celian Blake, to explore what it means to allow children to show us what the community of God is like. The children will lead participants through preparing and creating flower petal art, and Andrea will lead a discussion about ways that communities of faith can learn from children.
