Greetings, and Happy New Year!
I’d like to welcome back our students after the holiday break. My guess is that everyone is exhausted from all the fun and family, expectations and love, and, well, all of it! I know I am!
School starts up again after this short break, and we will move our learning from the great outdoors to our Progressive Christianity curriculum. We have used lessons from this curriculum for the last several years, and it provides us with a solid collection of stories and connections to our faith and to our learning. We’ll listen to the readings, and discuss the lessons within, and continue mixing the words with working with our hands on an art project or two. Use of this curriculum will continue through the winter, and will lead us back to the more nature-driven thinking we worked on this past fall, except we will engage in watching things grow, either from scratch or from renewal (seeds! plants! trees! grass!).
I look forward to seeing everyone this Sunday! — Tom Stevens
