Family Worship

I believe that the future of the church as an institution, will be determined by how strong the families are within the body of Christ. Spiritually strengthening families instead of just individuals will have a greater impact on the work of contributing to God's Kingdom, than simply opening our doors and sending forth an evangelistic message.

To that end, I invite you to take a look at this website, which is devoted to family worship. (click on the words "Family Worship" in the title above.) This is more than a devotional. It is a guide to lead families to the throne of God in their homes. For most of Christian and Jewish history this is where spiritual education was nurtured. It has only been in the last few centuries that we have shifted the responsibility of teaching our children about Christ to the church.

I believe God is calling us back to family worship and Greg Pittman has done a wonderful job of leading us in that direction. My family has been using his guide and find it to be extremely easy to work with, and have seen our children respond to it well. As parents, we have also enjoyed the opportunity to worship together as a family.

I highly recommend this guide to everyone.

May God bless you!
