Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us. 1 John 4:11-12 (NASB)
Last week’s flash flood reminded us that while things can be swept away in a moment’s notice, relationships are strengthened by trials. In a culture that prizes possessions and power, it was a stark reminder of our humble dependence on our Heavenly Father and our dependence on one another as well.
Anyone who watched the news can tell you that it was the willingness to sacrifice for each other that made us so proud to be Houstonians. In a similar way, it is not how smart our classically educated students are but how well they serve one another that makes us proud of our school. Classical education is not just about a great education (though it is this indeed!). Classical education is about restoring and preserving what is true, good and beautiful in our culture by teaching students how to live out their faith. By raising up a generation to be discerning and articulate followers of Jesus Christ we are raising up lights to the world.
Our culture asks, “What is truth?” Our culture says, “Good is whatever works for me.” Our culture believes that value is measured in “followers.” At Covenant, we believe that these views are indication of a world that needs leaders. Our mission is to train our students to lead by being loving reflections of God. We believe wholeheartedly that each and every moment we spend with our students is an investment.
