The family is a means to perpetuate the truth of God. Here are some good ways to accomplish this. What is a family? It is a perpetual relay of truth! Watch the children as you organize a relay race, a running contest in which two lines of children wait as one from each line runs a distance and returns to hand the flag to a team member. Back and forth they run and pass the flag. If one drops it, there is a forfeit of returning to the starting place. The Book of Psalms is so very strong in emphasizing exactly what I have tried to illustrate with the example of the relay race. The admonition to the parents to hand down the right flag all those centuries ago should be really titanic to us in this century, when some people are saying that they think not only the family but Christianity is about to become extinct.
When I picture your typical book that sets out to both define and celebrate the idea of "family," I get the picture in my mind of a "too perfect" happy nuclear family - Dad, Mom, 2 kids, and the family dog in their mini-van. Her book is full of sample scenes and dialogues that you might hear in the Schaeffer home. something that she and her husband did countless times with singles, couples and families as they initiated and maintained the still-flourishing L'Abri center in Switzerland.
