Ideas

I saw this commercial a bit ago, and it made me think of Lutheran schools:

I (think I) understand why we fear ideas in Lutheran schools:  Our theology.  Doctrine does not change.  God’s Word does not change.  And that steadfast and strong theology is the bedrock of who we are.  But that also creates tension as the culture changes around us.

Let’s hold fast to God’s Word, but let us be bold and fearless in seeking ways to educate FROM that foundation.  We do not want to constantly throw out the “good” in favor of the “new,” but we can judiciously analyze and try the “new,” keep the “good,” and in so doing reach and challenge more students.
