Covenantal & Classical Living

“You are the heirs of a remarkable legacy—
a legacy that has passed into your hands
after no little tumult and travail; a legacy
that is the happy result of sacrificial human
relations, no less than of stupendous human
achievements; a legacy that demands of you
a lifetime of vigilance and diligence so that
you may in turn pass the fruits of Christian
civilization on to succeeding generations.
This is the essence of the biblical view, the
covenantal view, and the classical view of
education. This is the great legacy of truth
which you are now the chief beneficiaries.”
—Arthur Quiller-Couch

A blessing that is a curse, in a covenantal way of course;) But I hold high and esteem the ones brave enough to take on that wonderful challenge!

Just found your blog! Love reading it and seeing your wonderful family!
Was this quote from a book of Q's?

You would love Hannah Coulter after
reading Jayber Crow!
