Devotional material has always been of immeasurable value to God's people. There was once a day when families gathered together to discuss religious topics. It was by those discussions, however brief and unstructured they may have been, that children became aware of their parents' faith and ultimately, their God. Today, we live in a busy world. With computers, television, VCR's, CD's and a world of entertainment at our fingertips, this opportunity of teaching has become all but extinct. The ultimate reason for this collection of articles: To give the parent some short meditations to enjoy personally and ultimately share with their family and children. Our homilies are, for the most part, a condensed version of messages delivered to our congregation. Surely, if they were given us by the Chief Shepherd for the feeding of the gathered flock, they will be beneficial to other sheep which are not of our immediate fold. For your benefit, we have included some helpful hints for parents at the conclusion of each devotion.
