Big Ideas to Consider:

1. There are basically two kingdoms: a kingdom of light and a kingdom of darkness. It seems strange to have those who walk in darkness educate children of light. It doesn't fit.

2. If Jesus Christ is Lord, then He is Lord of all. We cannot divide things into secular and sacred.

3. All truth is God's truth, and God's Word sheds light on our path. Only in His light can we see light. Education is not focused on possibilities but on certainties found in God's Word.

4. Deuteronomy 6 tells parents that, in all they do, they should provide a godly education 24/7.

5. Three key institutions that shape a child are the home, the church and the school. Children are served best when all three institutions point them in the same direction.

6. Only an education that has the liberty to address the whole child -- social, intellectual, emotional, physical AND spiritual -- reaches the possibility of excellence.

7. The best preparation for effective service is to be well grounded in one's mind before direct engagement of the culture.

Harold Naylor, co-founder of expressed his deepest sympathy for these parents and notes that the Amish parents of these precious children have become a remarkable witness to the watching world.  "It is devastating to think that in the normal course of sending your children to school each day, the unthinkable could happen.  Our hearts ache over the tragedies that have occurred in Pennsylvania and across the U.S. in the past week, and we willcontinue to pray for parents, children and our culture.   We also highly commend the entire Amish community in Lancaster, PA as they have become a perfect model of what forgiveness is all about.  One mourning family member told the family of Charles Roberts, the man who shot the children that, 'Christ forgave us, so we forgive Charles'.  This is a profound and life-changing example of what living out true Christianity really means and sends a passionate message to the culture of today."
