Sunday Schools and Their "Injurious Effect"


Do your children attend Sunday School?  If so, wisely consider this caution and word of advice which was penned one hundred years ago, in 1813.

"Our Sabbath school system, in the measure in which it tends to separate parents and children, cannot but have an injurious effect. It causes a separation of them beyond what is immediate. The Sabbath school is becoming the children’s church, as distinguished from the parents’ church, and it is becoming a rarer thing than once it was to see the parents and children together in the house of God."
