Rally Day Ruminations: The Problem with Sunday School

Bruce Robinson has written an article that shares my viewpoint about the importance of the church providing support and encouragement to parents as they accept the crucial role of faith formation leaders for their children. Below is an excerpt from the article.

“The problem with Sunday School, I guess I’m trying to say, is that Sunday School just can’t do what we seem to be asking it to do. It’s not that we’re spending too much time and energy with our kids, but that we’re not spending nearly enough time with their parents. The problem is not that we spend too much time designing or selecting appropriate curriculum and then training our teachers to use that curriculum successfully on Sunday mornings, but that we’re not spending nearly enough time inspiring and equipping and training parents for their critical role as teachers and spiritual leaders in their own families, and then providing them with tools to undertake that ministry in a meaningful way”.
