Resources to GROW in September! Book Recommendation: Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life by Donald Whitney https://www.lifeway.com/en/articles/spiritual-disciplines-gospel-solitude-donald-whitney Articles: The Gospel and Solitude: What does the Bible Say About Patience? https://www.gotquestions.org/Bible-patience.html Video: The Beat by Allen Parr https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QetW5Czec5A
Our theme this year is "Making the Most", based on Ephesians 5:15-16. Each month, the WARRIOR community will emphasize an avenue of grace and a character quality to encourage students to "make the most". The avenues of grace train students on how to grow. The character qualities demonstrate the result of growth. In September, TK-12th grade students will focus on the practice of solitude (avenue of grace); additionally the gospel will be preached at every chapel. Biblical solitude takes place when Christians intentionally carve out moments with God. Even Jesus "often withdrew to lonely places and prayed" (Luke 5:16). Next we will focus on patience (character quality) which occurs when one remains steadfast and faithful to God under the challenges of life. Please pray that our high school students will learn more about "Making the Most" at their fall retreat this week and that God will use these moments to transform our community.
