Two really thought provoking quotes about the relationship between family and church life. These are taken from the excellent book You are What you Love by James K.A. Smith.
“Our baptismal promises attest to the fact that “the church is our first family.” And “if the church is our first family, then our second homes should be defined by it, and our doors ought to be open to the stranger, the sick, and the poor.” pg118*
*I’m assuming this quote has the idea of pedobaptism behind it?
“For this reason, one of the most important decisions we can make regarding faith formation in our homes is the congregation to which we commit ourselves. Wise faith formation begins in the hub of the church’s gathered worship life.” pg118
