“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”
Lc 18, 16
The Jesus’ Sheep path of evangelization wants to reach children from 6 to 12 years old. Jesus’ Sheep gets its joy from the presence of the Shepherd who takes care of it, calls it by its name, leads it through green pastures, protects it from evil. His voice reassures it, gives it trust and security. The deepening of its relationship with its shepherd reveals its identity as a child of God. It is the discovery of the grace of his baptism. At this stage, the child learns to grow in alliance with his God.
The Word of God is at the heart of every Jesus’ Sheep meeting.
A meeting is the Word of God heard, proclaimed, welcomed, shared and updated. For each evangelical text, there are three meetings offered: Approaching the Gospel, Evangelical experience, Extension of the experience. These three meetings constitute the three stages of a unique pedagogy which takes its source and its inspiration from the Gospel itself. Meetings are held on a weekly or bi-monthly basis. They last approximately 60 minutes.
