Why the school room matters
As we begin the 2020-2021 school year and Gramercy enters its 40th year as a school, we are reminded yet again that as Christians we “walk by faith and not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7). 2020 has been a year of extraordinary upheaval for parents, students, and schools alike, but we rejoice that God has sustained us and allowed us the privilege of teaching and discipling students on a daily basis. In a time when our country is experiencing great unrest, I am reminded of the words of Abraham Lincoln who said, “The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.” As parent and teachers, it is our solemn responsibility and perhaps our greatest challenge to pass on the wisdom, righteousness, and justice of God to the next generation. We hold in our hands the baton of faith, and our goal is to pass it seamlessly to our children so that they might be fully equipped to finish strong!
