Relationships lie at the heart of the community! It remains my prayer as this school year settles into a routine that all of our families grow together as we walk this journey side by side with our children. My wife, Cheri, and I really enjoyed the time we spent “doing life” with LCA families in our students’ grades. We cheered on our students together, cried during rite of passage events, laughed at the crazy things they did, prayed together for them, and celebrated as they walked across the stage to get their diplomas! I miss those times. I hope you will cherish them each day and share with others the joy, pain, triumphs, and failures for these are the things that make community rich and meaningful.
One of my favorite things to do is spend time with students. I know it sounds obvious. Doesn’t every teacher enjoy spending time with students? Every teacher SHOULD but unfortunately, it is becoming all the more common to have teachers (outside of LCA of course) who do not enjoy students. I love sitting with them, reading to them, listening to their stories, and watching them perform. It brings joy to my heart! I had the privilege of speaking in chapel to the Upper School students yesterday about the priority of three relationships in their lives: 1) relationship with the Lord God, 2) relationship with the gospel, and 3) relationship with Jesus.
We reviewed our theme verse of Jeremiah 17:5-9 and asked the question, “Who is the Lord of your life?” We took a look at the Parable of the Sower in Matthew 13 asking the question, “What is the soil of your heart?” We finished discussing John 15 asking the question, “Are you connected in a personal relationship with Jesus?”
There is no more important question our students must answer than, “Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus as Savior and Lord?” Though important and worthy of study, no math, science, English, or history question compares in magnitude, duration, or priority to this big question!
We sow the seeds of the gospel every day at LCA. We do so fervently, unapologetically, and with great anticipation to see God change lives. To see God, the vinedresser, prune students to bear much fruit for His glory! To see our students grow as Christ did in “wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man.” Relationships are the foundation of the community at LCA. But make no mistake, there can be no foundation laid more important than a relationship with Jesus Christ! (1 Corinthians 3:11)
