Pastor Hubert Tiger of Regents Park CotN shows some of the church’s children our repaired “Holiness Unto the Lord” plaque that now hangs once again on the front wall of the sanctuary.

How do we pass the biblical message of holiness of heart and life on to the next generation? That’s a question we talk about a lot in Africa.

Part of the answer lies in how we involve our children in the life of the church from the youngest ages. Do we include them in the sacraments – the Lord’s Supper and baptism – or do we exclude them? Last week, I taught about Holy Communion at Regents Park, then wrote up a document:

“The Practice of the Lord’s Supper in the Church of the Nazarene.”

It will soon be available as a downloadable Clergy Development resource on the Africa Region website (www.africanazarene.org).

From Amy’s reading

“Generally my fellow townspeople, though they would help the poor, were not particularly fond of them.” – Elie Wiesel, in Night (New York: Bantam Books, 1960), 91.
