This is a follow up to our Christianity 101 course, so please take it first! In this course we explore how people follow through on their plans to follow Jesus.  We cover the Bible, Prayer, Community, Generosity and Service.  You’ll be encouraged to take steps to make each of these a part of your life, and to find a community of others who are making the same changes.

The best way to enjoy the course is if you invite a friend, who can listen to the same content as you, so you can discuss the question when you’re back in one place.  When you’ve been meeting in a group for a little while, register your group here.

Day 45 - Passing on Beliefs and Values At Home, With Others and On Money

2. Our home environment
• make your home a place that your children want to come back to, where:
• they are free to be individuals not in a straightjacket of conformity
• there are boundaries but not legalism
• there is discipline but not authoritarianism
• there is more encouragement than criticism
• there is plenty of fun and laughter
• there is more gratitude than complaining and blaming
• there are apologies and forgiveness and the opportunity for fresh starts
• faith is more easily caught than taught
o children initially form their picture of God from the way their parents treat them show unconditional love

3. Involving other people
• the wider family
• other role models

4. Passing on our values about money
• pressures on children and parents from advertising and the celebrity culture
• give them choices with money - choosing how much to save, spend, and give away
• teach generosity, good management, and honesty
• help them learn the value of experiencing delayed gratification
• model a healthy attitude towards possessions
