Linda VanVoorst :: Does teaching kids about justice teach them about God?

  • “In demonstrating to your kids that you want to teach them how to treat others well, you’re also going to have the opportunity to teach them that God loves His creation,” explains Linda VanVoorst, Director of Justice Kids and Director of Children’s Ministry at Antioch Church in Bend, OR. This is why we care for others and for creation: because God cares about His creation and His people. We are to care for what He cares about. Justice is about treating others well. In practicing justice, we grow closer to and learn more about God because justice is close to His heart. “When kids understand the why, it lets them develop a Christian worldview logic.”
