Message from the Principal
A Final Thought
What an awesome responsibility and challenge it is to raise children in our present times! So many things our youth face today tear at their bodies, minds, emotions and souls. These forces, whether they are people, things, beliefs or lifestyles, attempt to take young people down paths that can lead to utter destruction. It is frightening when our own children are the targets.
But here’s the positive side: what a wonderful privilege it is that God has selected you as a parent or grandparent of one of His little ones. There’s no greater joy than watching our children grow, mature, find their passions in life and successfully pursue them. It’s that beautiful gem of parenthood. One has to experience it to know what I’m talking about. I pray that many of you are in the middle of that experience right now.
The best way I know of to guarantee that joy is to keep the spiritual values of Jesus, their Savior, in front of them as they grow. This requires you to have that relationship with the Lord first, and to then serve as the example and role model that they so desperately need in their lives. Your children have received this guidance daily here at Pilgrim this year, but they also need it in the home – and a summer without their teachers looms ahead of them. As stated at the beginning, it’s an awesome and challenging responsibility – one you really can’t do by yourself. But with God as your guide and the Holy Spirit nurturing the faith in their hearts, it can be done. You can do it. May God help you to do so. Let our theme this year aid you, as you remember . . . . . .
It’s Still All About Jesus
