Since Korean society insists on social success, a competitive situation is formed in the lives of children. Therefore, children are used to how others are saying about their opinions and to think their answers are correct or wrong before they speak. This booklet shows that just simple questions to the children help children to explain their own experiences and they become to be able to share their lives without any pressure.
I think these are strong points of this programme.
Is there anything that is especially important for such a children's programme in South Korea?
Christian children in South Korea are needed to be encouraged to experience Jesus as a friend of them not as the judge or punisher. I hope that Korean Christian children learn on peace in practical way like this programme. As a divided country, we, including the children, used to hear a great discourse on peace not a tangible peace in daily lives.
What do you think children from South Korea, but also from other countries, need from our churches for the future?
In the relation with the third question, peace education is important. Sharing the ideas and understandings on peace from other countries, children in the world keep listening other’s voices and praying together.
Anything, any theme, and any idea can be shared among the children in the world, if we are doing this project continuously.
We, EMS, realized already that children are creative, open-mined, and funny through this programme, don’t we?
