What role do we have supporting someone already engaged with mental health services? How do we keep boundaries in life and death situations?

So often we look at children as those we need to teach. What if we saw that building relationship was mutually beneficial? How would that affect church, life, and community? Can we grow intergenerational communities that enable all to flourish? Jesus said ‘the kingdom belongs to such as these.’ In what ways can we hold space for children in and out of the church to build friendship, community and relationship with God?
