Ignorant Parents, Ignorant Children

"Most young Catholics [Lutherans] are uncatechized and disengaged from the church. The recommendation [we often hear is] that parents train their children in the faith and set an example of Catholic [Lutheran] devotion. No doubt a very good idea, if only the parents were not uncatechized themselves. We are now well into the third generation of Catholics [Lutherans] who were never introduced to the basics of the faith. Coloring butterflies in religion classes and encouraging inflated self-esteem are no substitutes for dogma and doctrine." (First Things, January 2007).

    The Growing in Christ Sunday school curriculum is a great antidote for this. Hearing Deaconess Pam Nielsen on Issues Etc. make all those Christ-centered connections about the weekly Sunday school lessons has been a wonderful learning experience even for this grown-up.
