Let Them Try

img_0336

I have very few memories of playing with my Dad. I have a boat load of him patiently showing me how to do things and then letting me try. Even if I screwed up, he would continue to let me try. I learned that screwing up is part of learning.

Hopefully I’m passing this on to my kids by including them in projects. Are you?

P.S. Churches are often so afraid of the screw up factor that they won’t let people try. Funny, Jesus lets me try things that I screw up all the time.
