What a blessing to attend the Christian Schools Canada Leadership Conference in Alberta a few weeks ago! The conference setting was amazing, in the heart of the Rockies with amazing beauty in every direction. The keynote speaker was Andy Crouch, formerly a chaplain at Harvard University, editor of Christianity Today, and author of several books - including his most recent, Strong and Weak and Playing God. If you ever have the opportunity to listen to Mr. Crouch speak, go! He is gifted with wisdom, humility, understanding of culture, our time, and our role as Christians and image bearers of God. Being with hundreds of Christian educators and administrators reinforced my understanding that Woodstock Christian School is just one part of the larger picture of Christian Education in this nation and on this continent. God is at work among us and is doing great things. God is indeed Greater - he surrounds us with his goodness and greatness. Psalm 125:2 "As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore."
