Determining one’s own truth- sexuality, life issues, overall morality.
Progressive thought and theory has become a reality of actions and life. Who would have ever thought that one would argue about being male and female, challenge the intrinsic value of life itself (in the unborn or aging) or even suggest that reality changes by how one feels from one minute to another? Consistency? Standards? Principles? Our moorings are more than challenged.
Some topics come under the guise of “political disagreements,” “personal choices,” or “differences of opinion.” But are they? How do we involve ourselves in what some might call “civil discourse” without the topic being perceived as a personal attack or a bigoted mindset?
Lutheran schools challenge ourselves to the words of the apostle Paul striving to “speak the truth in love.” Unfortunately, when the truth is not accepted as the words and teachings that come from the mouth of God- written in the Bible- accusation and defensiveness can be a product.
You’re invited to the Lutheran school community where life is treasured as a gift from God and where children are nurtured with a love and compassion that seeks to share Jesus in word and action.
You’re also invited to encourage this important mission. Pray for this work. Invite others to “Catch the Lutheran Spirit.” Consider your financial support of a school, of scholarships or for the unique work of The Lutheran Schools Partnership. Each of these supports will be an encouragement to continue to “speak the truth in love.”
