Educator's Convention - October 26 & 27
This week the WCS staff has the privilege of joining hundreds of other educators from Thunder Bay to Charlottetown to New York state to attend worship sessions, workshops, and to listen to keynote speakers at the annual Edifide Educators Convention. Edifide is a professional association for Christian educators. The Convention is held at Redeemer University College in Ancaster. The theme this year is "A Life of Grace and Adventure". It is based on John 10:10 (NIV) 'The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.' The keynote speaker will be Curt Thompson. He is a psychiatrist in private practice in Falls Church, Virginia, and the founder of Being Known, which helps people explore the integral relationship between deep, meaningful connections with God and the development of healthier minds, healthier communities, and ultimately, a healthier world. Not only will we be challenged as educators but we also be inspired, encouraged, and better equipped to teach at WCS.
