Quote of the Fortnight

Been very busy, so blogging slowed a little.

However, here is something for you to churn over, quoted by Mark Griffiths, author of "One Generation From Extinction":-

Growing churches do have an effective children's ministry because they deliberately see the children's ministry which they exercise as being very much part of the activity of the mainstream church. This integration mechanism of the children's ministry with the totality of the church activity is as important as the quality of the actual ministry itself if growth is to take place.

Peter Brierley, 2005.

Leave me a wee message! Only rules - is it true, is it kind, is it necessary?
