“When children realise that they are a part of this story, that God’s story is also their story, that God’s story connects with their own expanding self-narratives, they become responsible for ensuring that the episodes in which they make appearances are faithful to the overall scrips.” (David Csinos and Ivy Beckwith , Children’s Ministry in the way of Jesus, 2013).
