Devotional Thought:

Psalm 119 (the longest Psalm in the Bible) is themed around the concept of the extreme value of the Word of God in our lives. It’s easy to give lip service to our love for God. However, the Psalmist in this chapter reminds us that loving God involves being consumed with, following after, learning more, and obeying the Law (Word) of God. Do we love to follow after God’s laws (statutes, decrees, testimonies) or do we look at them as a list of condemning commands? Once we realize that God’s law is a personal love letter that is designed to give us hope and joy, then our perspective changes. By living out the Word of God in our lives we have the opportunity for Christ’s love to shine through us to friends, family and strangers that cross our path.

Mr. Hearne’s Recommended Resources:
(click below for the articles)

Parents, my three resources this week focus on digital safety. They were chosen because of a deadly new game I have been reading about, which according to the news, some teenagers in the United States are beginning to play, “The Blue Whale Challenge.” This is a dangerous game which may have led to teenagers committing suicide. Our students’ mental health is of great importance and we should all be equipped to help them remain mentally healthy and safe. If the news reports are true, the app encourages students to start a 50-day campaign of self-harm and end with suicide. After doing your own research, sit down and discuss online safety with your kids.

“Fabulous Five” As Reported By RCS Teachers:

  1. Mrs. Marcus reports, “We visited the Oakland Zoo and had a docent give us a tour. 1M kids asked critical and thoughtful questions about the animals. I was very proud of them!”
  2. Mrs. Vanegas reports, “This last Friday all the third graders had a wonderful Manners Lunch. The students had so much fun showing each other what they have learned. So proud of our third graders!” Click Here
  3. Mr. Hinton reports, “The Christian Ministry class is presenting their “Acts 1:8” projects. They are identifying key areas of their life and strategically planning how they can serve and do ministry in these areas!”
  4. Mrs. Haserot reports, “In second grade, students presented their biography book reports in an oral presentation. Students took on the character they read about.” Click Here
  5. Mr. Russell reports, “In Understanding the Times class this week, our graduating seniors were working to counteract the arguments laid out in Clarence Darrow’s essay “Why I am Agnostic.” They did a great job not only recognizing false arguments, but also putting forth some really well thought-out Christian apologetics.”

Matthew 6:9-13 – The Lord’s Prayer
“9 Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. 10 Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread, 12 and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”
