Here’s the thing, we want to be people who are committed to the youth. We like them. They remind us of the best and sometimes the worst of ourselves. Little kids are capable of simple wisdom or sincerity and they can grow into teenagers that inspire us to be better. Besides, we are part of a people that have been committed to youth for thousands of years. Some of our most ancient texts speak about teaching and raising kids, treasuring them as gifts. Our King himself, encouraged us to have the faith like children. It’s with this understanding that we incorporate the youth into the life of our church.
