Great Interview with VeggieTales Creator
Tony Kummer – a children’s pastor in Indiana – has posted a very interesting and encouraging interview with Phil Vischer, the creator of VeggieTales. Here is a little excerpt:
Focus on the things you can do that Nickelodeon and Disney can’t. You can tell a story – with eye contact and audience participation. You can hug. You can take kids on adventures outside – parks, pools, etc. You can make things together. Never assume that because kids sit in front of a screen at home, they should sit in front of a screen at church. Get up and move around. Sing. Years from now, those kids won’t remember what shows they watched or what video games they played. But they’ll remember the church worker that loved them.
I would encourage every parent and anyone who works with our children at church to read it. I also want to thank all of our children’s workers for taking the time to invest in our little ones – your work is much needed and much appreciated!
