After a "mixer activity", two students shared summer testimonies of faith. Ellie shared about how God's Word challenged her this summer. Through meditating on Isaiah 40, she grew in her awe of God's greatness and holiness. Joshua spoke about spending a day at the hospital where his mom works and how he ended up talking to someone about faith in Jesus Christ. The person asked for a Bible and he searched the hospital to find one for her (he found free Bibles at the chapel).
Mr. Wiener showed some tree pictures (of course). He made the point that flourishing trees are well rooted. He challenged students to focus on roots based on Jesus Christ, not roots based on feelings. Jesus is the strong foundation for our lives!
We ended with prayer. Alex played the piano while we prayed silently, and Mr. Wiener concluded the chapel with a prayer of blessing on the new school year.
