Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me.” Not only are we called to teach children how to worship, we are advised by Jesus to learn from children as well. Children contribute to a worship experience through their spontaneity, receptivity, thanksgiving, simplicity, enthusiasm, hope, self-giving love, and the freedom of their physical and emotional responses. Yes, we can learn much from children.
