'Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men' – Colossians 3:23
This semester we have been journeying with Paul as he preaches the Word of God to the early church. We all agreed that we are living in a time where it is easy to believe and have faith, unlike some of the early churches who were persecuted for their beliefs. As we filled in our travel journey, we began to understand the great work Paul performed for our Lord. It reminds us all that we should be prepared to answer God’s call and walk in faith with Him. We agree that sometimes it is not easy, but we have wonderful role models in our parents and teachers to help us along the way.
From Zentangles to Federation
We also looked at zentangles in Art, Maths and English – you can see our zentagles in the photo gallery. We discussed 3D shapes, lines, contours and patterns in Maths and how they could be applied to Poetry and Art. Not only can we use line, rhythm, and rhyme in the poetry we make, it can also be used when creating art. Zentangle is an easy and fun way to create beautiful images and show God’s wonderful creation. Students incorporated these three areas of learning and produced some wonderful artwork.
Lastly, this term we are looking at how our country became a federation and what this meant to each state. Students have been placed in groups and are working on points of opposing federation and what made each state decide to make this continent one country. I can see some great public speakers, passionate politicians, and some wonderful preachers in this class. We are building up some strong, faithful servants who can make this state and country one that will glorify and honour God.
They all have worked so hard this semester and have produced some interesting debates and discussions. They have grown in their leadership duties and have developed a delightful servant heart.
