Harmoniously blending the work of redemption and education

Hello Brothers and Sisters,

The end of this school year has been completely unexpected to say the least. The pandemic of the coronavirus is both surprising and horrifying. Schools have shut down for the year and we have transitioned to online education. We are told to keep our distance from each other, which can make supporting one another very difficult.

Rebekah and I saw something incredible yesterday evening though. There was a huge storm that hit Huntsville yesterday and a neighbor’s tree fell onto the front part of his house. Luckily, nobody was hurt, but there was still damage to the property. By the time Rebekah and I had gotten there, around 50 neighbors were there with chainsaws and ropes to cut and drag pieces of the tree away.

It was a nice reminder that even though social distancing is the mandate, people in our neighborhood threw caution to the wind to help out. It was a good reminder to me that there will usually be a reason not to help someone, but sometimes one must ignore those reasons and help those in need. It is one of the best lessons anyone can learn in life. We strive to teach the value of doing the right thing at BCCA and encourage anyone who is interested in sending their children there next year to reach out to me (256 - 527 - 5043).

The Good Samaritan, one of my favorite stories in the Bible, ends like this:

36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

Jesus commands us to treat everyone as neighbors and I hope the story I shared helped illustrate what that meant.

Blessings and Be Neighborly,
