Faith in Families

 

How do you witness to your family and teach the next generations about faith?

If you are not a parent, your “family” will be different to mine but it is just as important to God. Your family may be your housemate, your niece or nephew, your workmate or your next door neighbour. Whoever it is, God will equip you for the work that He has planned for you to do in their lives.

Witnessing to and teaching the next generations starts with Faith at Home which sounds daunting, but is really just doing what you’ve always done and inviting God into those spaces. 

I use the Faith 5 in my home as a tool to have faith conversations with my family. I ask my kids, and they ask me (and each other) what their highs and lows are. We also pray together at home and in the car (especially when we see an emergency vehicle or a car crash) and we bless each other daily – at least before school and again before bed. This is the best way that I can find to fit this into our busy lives.

If you want to know more about the Faith 5 or doing Faith at Home with your family I would love to chat to you.

Using these tools gives me that and my family the greatest opportunity to make disciples who exalt, explore, embody and engage. I pray that you too can use them and be empowered as you journey with God to do His work in and with your family.

God Bless,

Jess Pinkerton, Families Pastor
