When your child asks about God
How will you answer?
Children often have profound spiritual experiences. Like many adults, they look for meaning in life and want to know the cause behind all causes.
The ECK teachings offer spiritual understanding, tools, and insight that can help parents answer their children’s heartfelt questions.
Most important, children will gain a direct connection with Divine Spirit that can support them throughout a lifetime of purpose, joy, and discovery.
The role of the parents is to show the children how to come to the temple within themselves . . . to show them how to work with the sacred names of God and come to this Sound and Light of Divine Spirit.Sri Harold Klemp
