BCCA MESSENGER May 1, 2019
Harmoniously blending the work of redemption and education
Dear BCCA Families,
The end of the year is right around the corner! The kids (and staff) are excited about summer! Summer has always been a welcome break for almost my entire life. You get some time away from busy things and get to recharge for the next year. Of course, students always have some catching up to do once summer is over because they have taken a well-deserved break from school.
One thing I noticed about summer during my time at Walla Walla was it took me away from God. During my time at Walla Walla, I was a Theology Major. I read about religious things every single day and was constantly reminded about my need for God. Over summer, I didn’t read nearly as much and I started to pray less too. I realized this and disciplined myself to constantly be reading something religious, even over summer. Schoolwork should not be the only motivating factor for my relationship with God.
I want to encourage every parent to keep their child reading over the summer. More importantly, keep your children connected with God. They will not be in a Bible class everyday, but should be in daily communication with God nonetheless. Read about God with your child over summer. Do not let them drift away!
The less we read the Word of God, the less we desire to read it, and the less we pray, the less we desire to pray. - George Muller
