There was an ancient Chinese general who reasoned that if China was to be free (from some oppressor of the day), then his village would have to be free. And if the village was to be free, then he would have to be free. That same principle applies to our church. We are a worshipping church when our families are committed to worship. Our families worship when the individuals in the family also worship.
