This morning's I was reading a New York Times old article that was discussing the growing phenomenon of teens attending more than one congregation or tapping into more than one spiritual stream...This is indeed an interesting phenomenon...But to me, it seems to produce confusion....I believe in my heart it's important that children observe the practice of faith by their parents first and then others .... If the family is always scattered on Sunday morning, there is the danger that they'd drift apart as well...Having said that, once in a while if a teenager wants to visit a friend's church for special program, I believe that it is ok...There is something about family that means sticking together... Sooner or later, the teenage will become an adult and have their turn to make their own decisions including place of worship... Meanwhile, the parents should make this decision ...What do you think? Is this good or not? Should teens have such a choice?
