So, There has been a great deal of discussion in the cyber-world about what is/isn’t family ministry? There have also been many discussions on forums and on Facebook discussing the role of parents in the discipleship journey of a child. So is your head spinning? Mine has been.
Last week while listening to Phil Vischer speak at the Kidzmatter web summit, he said something that really struck me. (I don’t have the perfect quote, like I said it hit me hard!) He said something like this, “in a perfect world, parents would be discipling their children, BUT who has taught them how to disciple?”
I have studied two books recently, both by the same author Brian Haynes. His books Shift and The Legacy Path have been monumental in forming my family ministry paradigm. As I was reading this morning his chapter from Legacy Path (ch.7 Church+Home) It really rattled my cage!
