2019 Conference Theme: Nurturing the Practice of Childlikeness

The 2019 theme, one in a series on “Cornerstones of Anabaptist Schools,” explores the practices of childlikeness.

Jesus invited his followers to come to him as little children. Little children, at their finest, are humble, trusting, and content.  They delight in exploring the world God has made and imagining its infinite possibilities. They live freely in the moment and often display remarkable resilience in the face of challenges.

In three general sessions, Wendell Glick (Meadville, PA) explored what it means to be childlike and will offered ideas for nurturing the best aspects of childlikeness in our classrooms.
