You can’t invite early enough

Children are admitted to the Lord’s Supper – this decision was made by the synod of our regional church in 1979. So were many synods from other regional churches.

There had always been reservations in parishes. The confirmation was a prerequisite for admission to the sacrament, the critics argued. And children should first understand the meaning and meaning of the sacrament. That is only possible from a certain age.

However, it is not confirmation that participation in the Lord’s Supper is necessary, but baptism. According to Lutheran conviction, baptized people, including children, are called upon to participate in the faith through their faith To celebrate of the Lord’s Supper and listening to the preaching of the Word to strengthen and grow their faith.

My husband and I have long considered where we should go on our first long trip together with our son Amon (almost five years old) and our little Malou (15 months). In fact, it was something of a little "test" for us as a family. Our two children have a very different “travel stress potential”. While the big one actually isn’t Has problem, Malou is also a real whirlwind who always wants to be entertained. In the end we chose Thailand. In Thailand we were often on the road before the children. So we knew roughly what to expect and were able to plan better.
