When to have “The Talk” with your kids…

by jdarlack ~ November 17th, 2010

No. Not that talk.

When do you talk to your kids about Star Wars?

This has me thinking along several lines. When do you introduce a kid to Lord of the Rings? Do you start them off with The Hobbit or the Silmarillion?

Related to this question is how do you introduce people to the story of redemption? Is there a way to let the story unfold without plot spoilers?

Here’s an example of this happening to the Mouk People of Papua New Guinea. In this reenactment, missionaries show how they told stories from the Old Testament in chronological order before getting to the story of Jesus, his death and his resurrection. The response of the Mouk is amazing. (See around the 6:55 mark to skip to the good stuff.)

    Perhaps I should resume. :) It’s been too long.
