Dads Who Evangelize
Have you ever struggled to pass on your faith to your children?
I know I’m not alone when I say that talking about the faith in an age appropriate way to my children is hard. When they are young, just getting the threenages to sit still at mass is difficult. And when they are older…well…nothing I do impresses the teenagers.
While I’m not an expert in religious education, I am a father. So I invited other passionate fathers to join me in a conversation about evangelizing our own children.
Here’s some of what we discussed:
- How to create the space for children to express their feelings, thoughts, and doubts surrounding the faith
- Specific examples of how we live the Church’s call to evangelize our children
- How to help our children participate as we witness to/evangelize those outside of our immediate family
- Tips for doing these things in your life
