The optional topic for discussion during the month of April is:
Some Unconsidered Aspects of Religious Training - Chapter 13
Several thought (and blog post) provoking quotes & ideas (read the entire chapter online here):
"It is a very sad fact that many children get their first ideas of God in the nursery, and that these are of a Being on the watch for their transgressions and always ready to chastise." v3,p145
"The importance of reverent attitudes isa little apt to be overlooked in these days. We are, before all things, sincere, and are afraid to insist upon 'mere forms,' feeling it best to leave the child to the natural expression of his own emotions." v3,p141
- Authority in Religious Education & How it Works.
- The Habits of the Religious Life: of Reading the Bible, of Praise, of Sunday-keeping.
- Habit of the Thought of God.
