“To participate in the life of the faith community, children need to be a part of this community. And to be a part of the community they need to be present for its central practices. They need to rub shoulders with all sorts of folks who make up this community… They need to be seen as being active and valued members of their faith community.” (Ivy Beckwith and David Csinos, Children’s Ministry in the Way of Jesus, 2013 )
