“The family” by David Dickson

“The family– how much of a nation’s happiness and prosperity depends on that institution as a nursery, a school, a society, a sanctuary, a little church, and an emblem of the great family– ‘the whole family’ (Eph. 3:15), part of which is in heaven, and part still on earth.”

–David Dickson, The Elder and His Work, Eds. George McFarland and Philip Ryken (Phillipsburg, NJ: P&R Publishing, 1883/2004), 55.
