Family Worship

“Family-worship is a most proper way of teaching children religion, as you teach them language by insensible degrees; a little one day, and a little another; for to them line must be upon line, and precept upon precept…Indeed were this duty properly attended to, it might be expected, that all christian families would, according to their respective sizes and circumstances, become nurseries of piety; and you would see, in the most convincing view, the wisdom of providence, in making human infants so much more dependent on their parents than the offspring of inferior creatures are.” – Philip Doddridge – Extract from a Letter on Family Worship
