A Case for Parochial Teaching

One of the reasons I find myself telling others for my teaching at Concordia, rather than in a public school district, is that here, I can share my faith. And here, I can grow my faith.

Wait, there’s a weight room at CLHS? YES!

Yes, you may have heard a Cadet male who makes a futile attempt to convince his friends that he can bench press an unbelievable amount of weight.

The Cynical Giver: Explaining #GivingTuesday to My Students

"The tithe [10% of income] was not put into place for God’s benefit—He already has everything He needs. He doesn’t need our money! (And 'our' money is already His anyway.) Tithing was created for our benefit. It teaches us how to keep God first in our lives and how to live unselfishly. Unselfish people make better spouses, friends, relatives, employees and employers. And they usually have better finances. God is trying to teach us how to prosper over time. ... Remember, no one has ever become poor by giving."

What exactly is a ‘String Orchestra’?

Wait a second … I thought all orchestras had strings in them, so why is it called “string orchestra”? Well, let me tell you! A string orchestra is comprised of only strings (violin, viola, cello, bass). Piano and percussion can also be a part of a string orchestra. String orchestras are typically smaller in size as well, while full orchestras are much larger. Full orchestras not only include the string sections, but also include woodwind, brass, and percussion/piano. Just like any other musical ensemble, pieces are written strictly for string orchestras.

At the moment, in English 9, my freshmen are a bit over halfway through Romeo and Juliet, and we’ll be making our way through the last two acts of the play after Thanksgiving break.

Our Immutable God

In our Koinonia groups, we have been examining the meaning of an immutable God, and I have found great comfort in this topic. In our topsy turvy world we are flying high one day, confident and excited about opportunities and accomplishments, then the next day we may feel the great weight of the world.
