Foundations, Inclusion and Community

Tim ChanTimes News

Ephesians 2:19-22
Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.

This passage, which interfaces well with our school community theme (Ezra 3:11) was selected by JKCS staff as a guiding theme for them for
the school year.

Think of all who are estranged, left out or feel marginalized. Think of how words and attitudes can remind them of their true dignity; can help them to realize that we are called into one family in God.

Pray that we may remember that we are a dwelling-place for God. We cannot make ourselves worthy, but try to reflect God’s generosity by how we live and by what we say and do.

These are the foundations that reflect our dwelling in Christ, foundations that will serve us as we continue to be a vital Christian presence in our community. These faith foundations enable our student to grow with the guidance of their teachers and in interactions with their peers. These foundations are vital to the work our graduates will pursue.
