The Value of a Child

It was interesting to note at a recent diocesan meeting that they had compiled a large diocesan wide survey of children.  Their findings were surprising to many but I found them a bit predictable.  It would seem that the children surveyed said that they feel their opinion is valued in all of their communities.  It is used to shape the way their school community operates.  It is used to shape how their family structures work.  It is used and valued by all they have contact with… but not in the church.

When will we stop thinking of the church of the future and start valuing the church of today?
