From our CEO

Many schools like to start the year with a theme that runs across the whole school for the year. You might be interested to know that I too like to set a theme for our staff and this year, it’s “Faithful Presence”. I pinched it from a conference I attended last year. Rod Thompson tells me that it comes from a book written by James Davison Hunter on the postures of worship – faithful presence being one powerful one! As your servants, we hope to be faithful in a posture of worship to the Lord and of service to you. The words of Deuteronomy add to this.

“And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to Him, to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.” Deuteronomy 10: 2-15

As the te am at CEN are already geared up to serve you this year, we know that we also serve the Lord, hopefully with all of our heart, soul, and mind. You might be interested in knowing that this theme will also be our theme for our National Conference/AGM in May. I did ask for permission!

Here’s a great quote from James Davison Hunter:
