You walk through the middle school hallways and hear a “thump, thump, thump.” As you turn the corner towards the grade 5 wing, the sound starts to crescendo. You begin to follow this strange noise. Thump, clack, thumpity thump. “Where is this sound coming from?” you wonder. Is it a jack hammer? No, too rhythmic. Is [...]

BY BRIAN KONING, DIRECTOR OF ADVANCEMENT What a year it's been, “covidly” speaking. We’ll never look at the expression, “Hindsight is 20/20” the same way again. We experienced a shut-down of our society requiring us to re-think how we communicate, teach, worship, and gather together.

They say the world through a lens of wonder and contentment that made me [...]
