3.1 Christian Resources: Sermons on the Underground Church by Richard Wurmbrand

After years of imprisonment by the communist authorities in Romania, and living in a country that was far from free even when he was out of prison, Richard Wurmbrand has spoken expertly on the subject of the persecuted church. Brother Wurmbrand and his wife were eventually ransomed by Christians in the West and settled in the United States where they established Voice of the Martyrs (second link). He urged western Christians to prepare now for the possibility–indeed the probability–that they too would one day live under severe oppression. These four sermons are a place to start. His messages apply to us now in many ways, giving us pointers on our devotional lives.

3.3 Preschool and Kindergarten: Indoor Bowling

Simple toilet paper tubes and paper muffin cups make an easy craft and a great rainy day activity. Charlotte Mason was a big advocate of handicrafts as teaching tools. They teach following directions; the ideas of supply organization, preparation, and clean up; and fine motor skills. Of course, some crafts can lead to lifelong hobbies with relaxing (or invigorating) creative outlets, thoughtful homemade gifts, or even paid crafting!
