“Ninety percent of parenting is hiding iPads from your children.” –Jim Gaffigan
Faith Church recently kicked off a new teaching series, Arrows: Wisdom for Present-Day Parenting. (Not to be confused with Arrow, the Netflix show about a green guy who hunts down criminals.) The idea for the series comes from an ancient text, Psalm 127: “Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!” Children, like arrows, must be aimed. I’ve said before that parenting is rightly understood as sending; the ultimate goal is to send our children out into the world as faithful participants in the great gospel story.
