As cold winter weather has many wishing of flying south to warmer weather, it reminds me of one of my favorite inventions at many airports... the moving walkway. These rolling sidewalks allow willing passengers to potentially double their speed, helping them reach their boarding gate much quicker. And similar to escalators common in shopping malls, this invention is especially celebrated by children, providing much-needed entertainment for the bored traveler.
At recent Open Houses for prospective parents, over 60 new families investigated the mission of Crosshill Christian in their pursuit of Christian schooling. By its very nature, discipleship training within the context of Christian schooling has the ability to accelerate spiritual transformation in the lives of our children. Just as stepping on a moving walkway can increase the speed of reaching a destination, partnering with a discipleship training Christian school can increase the maturity of a disciple. Christian schooling can extend the spiritual foundations built in a Christian home during the many school hours of the week.
In order for a moving walkway to truly accelerate transportation, a person must continue walking after stepping on the conveyor belt. Youtube is littered with the lazy and inattentive who simply stand as the sidewalk moves. Without fail, when the walkway ends, an abrupt fall results. Similar results are possible in the spiritual lives of our children. If their faith is compartmentalized to only momentary components of their lives, there is a greater potential for an abrupt fall during one of life’s many transitions.
Crosshill prioritizes the integration of each student’s faith with their pursuits in academics, athletics, family, church, community, entertainment, and eventually the workplace. When the storms of life arise from surprising directions, only a consistent foundation built upon the Rock will be firm enough to stand upon. May we all help accelerate the spiritual transformation in this next generation each day of the week in every area of their lives.
