Got my first (trial) issue of Family Reformation magazine yesterday. I loved it!
Here’s a quote that I particularly liked, from an article titled “The Labor of the Home” by Mrs. Jennie Chancey: (emphasis added)
We must reclaim a scriptural vision for the labor of them home – for the things that take place within its walls. This is true for the homemaker without children just as much as it is for the mother. We create the culture in which we want to live. There is much talk about Christians “influencing” the culture, but this demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding of what culture really is. Christ is culture. Christians should be living the culture of our King before a watching world – not limping behind a deteriorating culture built on sand in hopes of “influencing” it in some way. The Christian home must be the culture it wishes to see around it.
This puts into words so well my vague and disjointed thoughts about what it really means to be light in a dark world and how we ought to interact with the world.
