"The lack of emotional security of our American young people is due,
I believe, to their isolation from the larger family unit. No two people -

Pearl S. Buck
"Like all the best families, we have our share of eccentricities,
of impetuous and wayward youngsters and of family disagreements."

forces us to deal with all the mess of our humanity in the context of God who has already entered that mess in the
glorious birth of Jesus."
