If you enjoy watching sports like I do, and following your favorite team or athlete, it is exciting to see them win. If you are a true fan, you will stick with your team through the losing seasons, but it is so much better when they are winning. It is even better when they win […]
The last couple of months, your teachers and principal have given Chapel messages about well-known, and impactful members of the Christian faith and about what we can glean from their life and example. We have called this sermon series: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants. We have heard about amazing historical figures, from Gregory the Great to Mary. Today, I will be speaking on a person, both from history, and from historical fiction…Alexander Hamilton.
You’ve all heard from many of your teachers concerning the Giants of the Faith. How do you compare as a follower of Jesus Christ to those greats of the past? How do you want to live your life? Are you living according to your intended purpose? These are questions we all must ask ourselves. The Giant we will talk about today is Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He asked himself these types of questions often in order to make sure he was on the right path and I challenge you all as you listen to my message this morning to challenge yourselves concerning these questions.
by Shelby Hawkins As I was thinking about who I should talk about in chapel, I noticed there were no women presented. So, I chose a woman who has been a pivotal figure in the Christian church and someone I wanted to know more about. She, in a much greater sense, was an outsider too. […]
By: Mrs. Diane Carter When Mr. Smith asked the faculty to participate with him this semester in presenting chapel, asking us to offer to you biographies of our favorite historical or Bible figures, I jumped at the chance to present to you my lifetime favorite, William Wilberforce. For decades, His story and his very person […]
There is a saying that just like going to McDonald’s doesn’t make you a hamburger, is just like going to church doesn’t make you a Christian (I guess we are in the land of Whataburger so maybe I should say just like going to Whataburger doesn’t make you hamburger). I may add, just like going […]
I find it very interesting that we have come to the beatitude of hungering and thirsting for righteousness, right at the tail end of an election. I voted for the first time in Texas and was shocked to see signs everywhere at the voting place. There was even a group of people trying to get […]
History is full of men who led armies for the single purpose of trying to rule the world. Napoleon Bonaparte, the French General who at one time conquered and ruled over 70 million people, Francisco Pizarro, the Spanish conquistador who dominated much of South America in the 1500’s, Julius Caesar who led the armies of […]
I want to talk to you today about getting or not getting honored and the temptations that are common to all of us in these areas. Think about these two questions, first, what do I do when I am disappointed and don’t get an award? Number two, what do I do when I do get […]
In 1962, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons released a song called “Big Girls Don’t Cry”. There is a famous quote of the character Tom Hanks was playing in the movie A League of Their Own, “There’s no crying in baseball.” I’ve heard that some southern moms may have said to their child, “If you […]
