Primary school aged children are in a constant state of discovery as they explore and engage with their world. They try out many new experiences and learn something every day. What a wonderful time for us to maximise a child’s natural sense of discovery when it comes to God and faith development. Another new thing for them to explore is who God is, how He sees them and how much He loves them.
It is important for those of us who are helping young people on their faith journey to craft experiences where our children can discover the truths of scripture and who God is for themselves rather than just being told what to think and understand about him. We already know so much cool stuff about God and have hopefully experienced this for ourselves, and we want children to experience God too, not just know about him.
