Reformation Day

Yesterday, we acknowledged Reformation Day in our weekly chapel. 

Here are some thoughts from this week's Pot's Ponderings as well as a video highlighting some of  our chapel. 

Nearly 500 years ago a movement took place within the existing Roman Catholic Church in Europe that profoundly impacted the development of western civilization. At the heart of this movement was a call back to the truths expressed in Scripture and echoed by early church leaders. These truths were summarized in five Latin phrases:
Sola Scriptura – by Scripture alone
Sola Fide – by faith alone
Sola Gratia – by grace alone
Sola Christus – by Christ alone
Sola Deo Gloria – To God alone be the glory
It is my prayer that these simple statements will guide our school community in the years ahead. May we acknowledge Christ alone, as Lord of all things. As we read in the Bible, it is by grace, through faith we are made right with Him. And for that, may we give God alone the glory.
