The Family and how the Scriptures are passed to the next generation
The first part of the webinar will look at Biblical and Historical perspectives on family. Then, after looking at the story of the Man Who Planted Trees (as a metaphor of hope) , we will consider current contexts of how families enable children to read the Bible. One of the aims of this webinar is to encourage those who have children in their care to look more carefully at how they interpret meaning from Scripture.
