You’ve heard of gentle parenting, but is it really Christian or just a cultural fad? Don’t the apostles say “Children, obey your parents” and “all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant”? How does that align with gentle parenting? In this workshop theologian and seminary professor Dr. David Erickson will dive into the writings of the first-century church to explore what the apostles can teach Jesus’ followers about parenting. On questions of obedience, respect, nurture, and discipline the apostles wrote timeless principles that remain applicable today. The teachings of Jesus and the apostles upended the cultural norms in the Roman world and parenting was no exception. That’s still true as living out the Gospel of Jesus in our families continues to upend our cultural norms.
