Family Worship

Scott Head has written an encouragement for fathers to practice and lead family worship.

As fathers it is plainly expressed in the Word that it is our duty to disciple our children ourselves, always and continuously. While there is a great blessing in other ordained venues and through gifted teachers such as the corporate worship and preaching of the Word, the primary duty passing on of the faith falls squarely upon the father; the father is the responsible party. This is why family worship is critical, it is a great and mighty tool in the duty of discipling children. You, dear brother, should lead out by establishing this practice in your home.

In our family we have been having family worship every night for the past year and a half or so, and it has really impacted our family.  We read scripture, study catechism, learn theological concepts, sing, and pray.  I would encourage every family to diligently practice family worship.
