Fostering Cultural Harmony Among the Student Body

In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus told his disciples, “You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant” (Mark 10:42-43). In many schools, seniors and upperclassmen follow the world’s pattern of looking down upon and lording it over their younger peers. Such pride establishes barriers between older and younger students, harms relationships and falls short of Christ’s good command. In this session, tangible examples will be shared to help your students live out biblical greatness and allow the group to brainstorm, share and consider what cultural structures have/can be put in place to empower your students to do the same.
