Our Children – God’s Children   by Rev C Bouwman

"With this article, I want to draw out that the children entrusted into our care are heirs of God’s kingdom; God has claimed these children for Himself in His covenant of grace, so that all His promises in Jesus Christ are for them. This royal identity implies that each of our children are exceedingly special to God. This identity in turn affects –even dictates– the way we treat our offspring."

Headship and Submission   by Rev C Bouwman

"What do Scriptures mean by describing the husband as "head" of his wife? And what concretely is expected of the wife in the instruction to "be subject"? Are these terms not impossible throw-backs to a long outmoded view of marriage? A closer look at what the apostle Paul writes in Ephesians 5 may provide for us some answers."
