After day two of leading chapel, I feel that preaching to little people is very different than preaching to adults.
First, kids don’t lie to you while you preach. It is pretty easy to tell when you’ve lost them. And they are not impressed by any sort of theological language.
A helpful reminder for me that “If you can’t explain it to a six-year-old, you don’t understand it yourself.”
It was mid-sentence during my chapel lesson on the Apostles Creed that I realized I had no idea how to explain the “virgin” part of Virgin Mary to 6-year-olds.
