Andy has David Rueter, the Director of the Director of Christian Education Program at Concordia University Irvine, and Jonathan Pratt as guest on this episode of Reconnect to share their thoughts on why it’s beneficial to the Body of Christ to have kids in church services, no matter how young, or how noisy they might be, and why it’s detrimental if we keep them separated.
Anna Mussmann’s article, “Four Reasons It Is Good Your Kids Are Being Too Noisy In Church”, provides a framework for their conversation, as well as research data from David’s Concordia Publishing House book, Teaching The Faith At Home: What Does This Mean? How Is This Done?.
