Health and Spiritual Empowerment Lesson
Henry Oyier,Ida Bazonona,Irene Ngobi
Bible Lesson 8: Teaching Children
Ida introduced the lesson with the ice breaker question.
“ who owns a child in a family?”
Nangobi said that children are for women.
Joy said that children are for men and gave her reason that without a man a woman can’t conceive.
Kyakulaga Godfrey said that children are for women.
The debate was good and after getting different answers , Irene and Ida divided members into groups. Henry took the men outside and women remained in the church building with Irene and Ida.
Irene told the women that children belong to both women and man because when God was assigning duties regarding children he made both of them responsible for them. Looking after the children’s general health,hygiene and upbringing is responsibility for both though mothers stay with the children almost all the time, decision making in cases of conflict should be talked about for example what to do with the harvests,where to take children for school,neither partner dominates and always to seek advice where they fail to reach a consensus.therefore men and women were encouraged to share these functions equally.
This is just a step , we’ll learn more about who is responsible for what and also how to work together for the good of our families.
