"It is therefore essential that when the people of God worship it should be all the people of God and not merely a part. Special services for different groups may have their place, but ideally each family should worship Sunday by Sunday with other families in the Family of God, meeting in the Parish Church which is the Father's House. We must always regard as something which is incomplete a service which is merely for children and excludes adults, just as we should feel there is something missing in a service attended by the grown-ups, from which the children are absent. These are however pioneering days. We are striving for the ideal, and the author of this book is a realist. .... What is written in this book has been tried and found successful in a very live and busy parish in Worcester, and because I believe it will be of tremendous help to Clergy, Lay Readers, Parents and Teachers, I am glad and grateful that this scheme of family worship, how it is expressed and what is taught, is to be available for a wider number of readers than those who have the good fortune to reside in Mr. Taylor's parish". -- Foreword.
