The Great End in Religious Instruction
For this Throwback Thursday Post, I am going back to this adaptation of William Ellery Channing's words I did for Starr Island RE Week in July 2010. They are definitely worth re-posting!
- The great end in religious instruction is to stir up the minds of all of us - our children, youth, young adults, adults and elders.
- To journey together as we look inquiringly and steadily with our own eyes and strive to see what others see.
- It is to inspire a fervent love of truth.
- To prepare all of us for impartial, conscientious judging of whatever subjects may be offered to our decision.
- To quicken and strengthen the power of thought.
In a word, the great end is to awaken the soul, to excite and cherish the spiritual life.
- To awaken the conscience, the moral discernment.
