Getting more Christian and less religion in our Christian Schools.
Christian education can be an incredibly transformative force.
It can take a life in its infancy, a time when someone is establishing their understanding, expectation and perspective of the world and bring hope. Hope in a world that is increasingly seeming hopeless. It can help a young person understand that success is not about who dies with the most toys, rather it is about how many others one person can help, not just here on Earth, but for eternity. It can help a young person understand that they are a not the centre of the universe, fulfilment comes when we learn to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and mind and learn to love our neighbour as ourself. At its essence, Christian Education is counter-cultural. It tells of an alternative narrative to the world that other schools promote. Christian Education compels a view of the world that the world has lost. A view of the world that society no longer wants to see, albeit a world that society needs.
