The LCES Difference: Who are we?

LCES Board meetings in January and February have been focusing on taking stock of what we are, where are, and where we feel called to go as a school. I left one such meeting a few weeks ago with my head full of thoughts from the valuable discussion. Sleep evading me, I thought I would take the opportunity to try to get specific with the first question; “Who is LCES?”

LCES is not just a building that is spacious and bright
                …although it does look like that that
LCES is not just a place of song, laughter, quiet concentration, and noisy learning
                …although it does sound like that
LCES is not just a school of people who enjoy community
                …although we are blessed to live with much in common
LCES is not just a place of change, growth, and renewal
                …although we delight each term with how students change
LCES is not just a place where students are steered toward a future occupation
                …although we do find joy in recognizing gifts and talents for use in God’s kingdom
LCES is not place where people are perfect and problems escape us
                ...because we are in need of God’s grace like everyone else

LCES is a place of learning that exists because of Christ
                “For from him, and through him, and for him are all things. 
                  To him be the glory forever! Amen” (Rom 11:35)
