Over the past year the church has come under increasing attack by a culture that is aggressively rejecting God’s order to reality. These social challenges are clear indications that some of the basic Judeo-Christian beliefs that have guided our culture for centuries have almost completely been eroded. In this context, a classical liberal arts education becomes more crucial for our students and their families as we seek to prepare them to enter their future vocations with the wisdom to navigate the varied social environments that they will inhabit. This session will utilize the biblical book of Daniel as a framework for gaining insight on how our schools can wisely navigate the perilous waters that we must face in the near future.
