Book Excerpt

The great Puritan preacher, Matthew Henry, encouraged parents to teach their children about worship and to bring the children to services with them. He wrote:

CIC coverLittle children should learn betimes to worship God. Their parents should instruct them in his worship and bring them to it, put them upon engaging in it as well as they can, and God will graciously accept them, and teach them to do better.

(Quoted on page 21, Children in Church: Nurturing Hearts of Worship)
