… 2 that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
During the 2017-2018 school year, the theme is Discovering Our Hidden Treasures. Throughout the next 10 months, students, staff and families will be endeavoring to unpack what this means and how it applies to the fabric of the Hillside Academy classrooms and community-at-large. We will explore and discover the hidden mysteries of Christ through…
*Encouraging our hearts
*Being knit together in love
*Riches of full assurance of understanding and knowledge
*Relationships in and through Christ
It is often stated that where our treasure is there our heart will be also. Is treasure solely riches, money and/or resources? Is it possible to define treasure in multiple ways? As students, staff and I pursue treasures in Christ, we will be realizing that within each person there are treasures -some yet to be discovered. Similarly, there are treasures waiting to be celebrated in the communities in which we live and work. Perhaps there is a treasure that has been buried so deep that it will require the community to bring it to light.
The journey we take together will take time, look different for each person, and most likely will have some bumps and uncertainties. It is through the struggles and hard work that we learn to appreciate and ultimately celebrate the wisdom attained. I look forward to what God has in store for each of us!
