“Families are traditionally the base unit and structure of the Christian church as they are the church-within-a-church and the first unit of individual cells gathered together. Therefore, it is crucial that family prayer not only occur, but also catechism occur so that the children in families understand what their faith means and believes. Only by being shaped by the waves of daily prayer and catechism can one’s mind be transformed so that their lives conform to the love that only the Spirit produces over and against the carnal self we are all born into.”
I would only add one quibble: while it is true that, as Anglicans, “our common worship is a broad orthodoxy that bridges the divide between Lutherans and Reformed bodies,” that is only part of the equation: we are also a Via Media between the Church Catholic – in both its Eastern and Western manifestations – and the churches of the Protestant Reformation. We are, in fact, Reformed Catholics: and while our reference point as Anglicans is the Common Prayer tradition, our reference point as Christians is or ought to be the “ancient and undivided Church” of the First Millennium of the Christian era.
That said, there is much of wisdom in this essay!
