Retired Army Chaplain Gary Sexton had a chance to read Children in Church: Nurturing Hearts of Worship. Here’s how he describes the book:
If you are a parent or grandparent seeking insight into contributing to the memory of your little one; if you are a pastor or church volunteer wanting perspective and practical help for the faith formation of the next generation of the Church, you will find both in Curt and Sandra Lovelace’s ministry to the one’s for whom Jesus had a special regard. This book is an investment in future believer testimonies celebrating that “my earliest memories are of my time in God’s house, with God’s people, under the teaching of God’s Word, knowing God’s presence in my life.”
Children in Church balances biblical rationale for inter-generational worship with practical tools for assisting families in the vital task of rearing children in “the fear and admonition of the Lord.” The Lovelaces demonstrate compassionate sensitivity to a thorny issue in congregational life: “What about the children?” The forthrightly acknowledge the challenge of responding to the need for “doing all things decently and in order” while fulfilling covenant responsibilities to “forbid them not.”
