Welcome Back-to-School!

Dear Parents,

"If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all." (Romans 12:18)

Our theme verse for the school year is in many ways countercultural. Our students are growing up in a world where discord and arguing are the norm. I am an avid ESPN watcher and many of their shows are based on arguing, often to the point of yelling. Sadly, it is not only in the sports world but watch any of the cable news shows and most segments contain an attack of those who sit on the other side of the proverbial aisle. Social media has only elevated this trend as many use various platforms to fire off sharp criticisms of companies, leaders, movements, etc.

The apostle Paul encourages us to live peaceably with all. Now Paul was not afraid of a good debate and often sought them out - don't forget he went right to Areopagus, the ancient supreme court of Athens, to claim the name of Christ. However, Paul in this passage of Romans is reminding us that our testimony is more important than winning an argument. As Christ-followers we need to seek peace.

My prayer this year for our students is that they learn to listen to each other, find common ground, and live peaceably with each other. If we do this as a community, we will certainly stand out amongst our peers and hopefully point others to Christ.

I look forward to seeing your family on campus in a few short weeks.

God Bless,

Barry Giller

Head of School
