    All-age worship is:

    authentic worship within the christian community

    in which children learn about symbol, silence, and sacred space

    and adults encounter the kingdom of god as god intended

    But Jesus said, Let the children come to me. Dont stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children. And he placed his hands on their heads and blessed them before he left.
