The Work at the Table

January 14, 2022
By Paul Williams

As we think about the vitally important work done in the home, parents need to know that TPCS cannot replace the home. We can supplement, come alongside, and support the home. Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (NASB) These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. Among the many topics that are best taught at home, I think of the issue of racism. Below is a thought from Aaron Howard, Ph.D.

The power of racism is broken when we teach our children not to stereotype and make assumptions based upon someone’s race or ethnicity.

The dinner table must become a place where these lessons are revisited over and over again.

God told the children of Israel, "6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”

We must teach the next generation to love others in our words and deeds, continually and consistently.

At TPCS, we want to support the vital work of raising children who love their neighbor as themselves – Mark 12:31. To do this work, there are many tools, but none better than what parents can do at the dinner table.

The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children. – Dietrich Bonhoeffer
