CHRISTIAN EDUCATION EDITORIAL

We are all familiar with the Boy Scout motto, “Be Prepared.” In fact, in many cases we adhere. We prepare for vacation. We make sure our vehicles are tuned and ready for the journey ahead and we pack all necessary items for all possible weather conditions. We also prepare our kids for school. We make sure they have clothes and all needed school supplies. We attend teacher meet and greets and conferences. Additionally we prepare for the work week, we prepare for the holidays and we prepare for retirement. How well though, do we prepare our children and ourselves for life’s unexpected and unpleasant events?
“Life Happens,” is another truthful statement. Preparing a strong foundation built on faith and a deep relationship with Christ helps to ensure that when it happens, we and those we love weather it triumphantly. The same holds true when God tells us to go out
and speak about Him. He wants us to be ready when someone asks us why we believe what we believe. Why we accepted Jesus Christ into our lives. Why we follow Christ and try to live as he wants us to live.
Regardless of the time of year, God calls us to be prepared. Any moment could be a time when He works through us to change a life for all eternity. Let us welcome summer as a time to grow our and our children’s faith and relationship with Christ rather
than to take a break from it.

~ In Christ, Pastor Cheryl Schalm, Minister of Christian Education
