Supporting Sunday Schools

I believe in Sunday Schools and that children should have teaching specifically tailored to their needs.

A child’s way of understanding is not the same as that of an adult. ‘When I was a child… I thought as a child’ (1 Corinthians 13.11). A child can understand the truth in a simple way, but can also misunderstand. To mention a crass example, when she was a girl, there was a boy in my wife’s class named William Heaven. You can imagine the kinds of confusion that arose in the little boy’s mind from the opening sentence of the Lord’s Prayer. So it’s good that there is a time when children are taught separately from the rest of the church. Sunday School teachers do a wonderful job.
