Letters To Their Pastor

Don’t you just love the way that children think, especially when it comes to church, religion, God and all that. These letters to their Pastor were written by young children from all over the USA and are a fascinating insight into the way that children’s minds work and in some cases, where their priorities lie. Children also speak their minds and sometimes the truth isn’t exactly what we like to hear, for example the letters from Stephen in Chicago and Ralph from Akron.

These were written a few years ago, but are just as relevant today. If this list was compiled now, you can be sure there would be references to Xbox and Playstation, Mobile Phones and without a doubt Social Media. I can’t imagine any child’s conversation today not including Facebook or Twitter, or more likely Snapchat or Tik Tok.

Hope you enjoy this list and get a chuckly out of these letters and please do share our posts if you do. Spreading the word means spreading the laughter, which we all know is good for the soul.

How does God know the good people from the bad people? Do you tell Him or does He read about it in the newspapers?
