We are blessed as a Christian community to have a school such as ACCS! We as a family–and I personally–feel very privileged to be merging into the ACCS community. I have met wonderful people, I have heard great ideas for how we can make ACCS even better, I have begun to work with inspiring teachers, and I have seen ambitious young students.
I am coming into this situation with a desire to be a "servant of the servants of God" (to quote someone from the late 6th century, but not owning the historical baggage 😀). Who are these "servants of God"? They are you as parents (represented by the Board). They are our teachers. And they are even our students. This is an exciting prospect.
But daunting. My verse of the day today was the well-known verse from Philippians 4:13–"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Wow! We, the ACCS community–those who wish to serve the King of Kings and the Prince of Peace–can do all things through Him who strengthens us!
Exciting times lie ahead. Let's do it with an aim to be Christ-like in all our interactions. Let's do it with a wariness of the schemes of the devil to divide and distract. Let's do it in unashamed dependence upon Him. Upon Whom? Upon the Creator of heaven and earth, the seas and all that is in them! With that, I have every confidence we can do all things and that ACCS will thrive!
To God be the glory!
