Leader: Sophfronia Scott
Join author Sophfronia Scott as she discusses the book she wrote with her son, Tain Gregory, about the faith journey which began when Tain asked to enroll in Sunday school. The book looks at how a parent can help a child have a real faith as they engage in deep conversations, pray together, and get involved in the life of their local church. Tain’s mom realizes the depth of her son’s faith when he is in third grade and loses a close friend in the Sandy Hook school shootings. Shortly afterward, he is asked what the most important thing in the world is to him and he replies “God.”
