An amazingly effective Bible teacher was once turned down by his Church to teach children’s Sunday school – because he was too gifted, and they didn’t want to waste him on children’s Sunday school.
Maybe some teachers in children’s Sunday school are not theologically trained. Maybe they cannot explain the hypostatic union or the Pauline doctrine of election. Maybe they are not pedagogically equipped, but the slow repetition, over years and years, of the Word of God, was enough to transform one man’s life.
And this transformation still occurs today in children’s Sunday school.
Children’s Sunday school could be a matter of life and death, and to see it as just another program could be an error of epic proportions and cosmic consequences.
