Conservative Christians desire to conserve something–namely, fully-orbed biblical Christianity. To conserve something implies passing it to the next generation.
For this reason, Conservative Christians are committed to the holistic education of their children. This has always been an emphasis of Religious Affections Ministries, but starting tomorrow we’re going to make it a dedicated emphasis; you’ll be able to find articles that deal with children and the family under the category “Articles on Children and Family.”
In these articles, you will find a defense of an emphasis upon transmitting a biblical worldview and Christian tradition through regular catechesis, in faithful family worship, by welcoming all ages into the corporate worship of our churches, and by overseeing the entirety of their education in matters of spirit, mind, and body.
In particular, tomorrow my wife will begin a series on the importance of and resources for teaching history to children. I look forward to the opportunity she’ll have to share some of the research she’s done evaluating various Christian history curricula, which will be helpful for families who homeschool and even those who do not.
My hope is that we will be able to offer much in the way of resources in this important area as we seek to pass Christian values, practices, and traditions to the next generation.
