God’s Glory in Your Students


by
Peter Baur November 8, 2018


Presented at:
2018 SCL Annual Conference

ABSTRACT:

What does it mean for our students to be image-bearers? Do our students all bear God's image in the same way? Can we play a significant role in communicating to our students about God's unique image borne out in them? Through personal stories and powerful imagery, this session will deepen your understanding of the profound role we play as educators in helping our students see that God has placed His image – though faded – of the Good Life in the depths of their hearts. After attending this session, a teacher with more than 30 years of experience commented that this presentation had a greater impact on how she saw herself as a teacher than any other.
