Biblical Worldview Week

I am very excited for our upcoming Biblical Worldview Week (formerly Spiritual Emphasis Week) which takes place March 25-29A worldview is simply a view of the world and a view for the world. The Christian faith holds these two aspects in tension. The Biblical view of the world is that is broken by sin. But the view for the world is that it can be made whole again in Christ. Being redeemed by Christ means that we can once again reflect God's glory as we were designed--marked by love, unity, and humility. 

Biblical Worldview Week is a time to reflect on the Gospel and its implications for everyday life at home, church, school, and in the world for the rest of our lives. This year’s theme is What Perfect Love Looks Like. When we grasp God’s perfect love for us it will make a way for joyful play, yield wisdom, prompt lives of service, cast out fear, and inspire prayer and praise! I pray that you might gratefully receive this everlasting love and humbly walk in that way. 

Chaplain, Mark Persson

Each spring, the Upper School designates a week to rejuvenate a climate of Christ-centered spiritual vitality within the student body.  Biblical Worldview Week is a time of challenge and motivation. Partnering with local church leaders, youth directors, and nationally known ambassadors for Christ, students grades 6 -12 have the opportunity to hear a variety of special speakers and examine issues crucial to youth culture.
