“Every Christian family ought to be, as it were, a little church—consecrated to Christ, and wholly influenced and governed by His rules. And family education and order are some of the chief of the means of grace. If these fail, all other means are likely to prove ineffectual. If these are duly maintained, all the means of grace will be likely to prosper and be successful.”
~ Jonathan Edwards, 1750
“We are not aiming to produce a tribe of precocious Pharisees who can list Biblical facts and lay out the five points of Calvinism but never know their Savior. Rather, in the Word and Truth they meet and come to know the persons of their God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.”
~ Rediscovering Catechism, pg 57.
