Edvance Annual Gathering 2020
“Opening Doors” Christian schools play a fundamental role in shaping the values that inform how students encounter and contribute to the world locally and globally.
Christian schools play a fundamental role in shaping the values that inform how students encounter and contribute to the world locally and globally. We live in an age where both the importance and the risks of our local human connections are being scrutinized more than ever, and our communities feel vulnerable in the face of significant global tensions. How do we navigate issues such as health, race, and identity with a sense of shared purpose and honoured differences such that community and character blossom? How can we pursue the call to love our neighbour with local action and global awareness without feeling overwhelmed? What doors can the school open with students to encourage courageous encounters with and for the world?
Cultural commentator David Brooks and educators Dr. Mary Ashun and Dr. Steve Sider will explore these questions—helping to understand our cultural moment and urging us to open doors with our students that can lead to local, and even global, flourishing.
Join Edvance online on Thursday, October 29, 2020 to delve into these important issues with these three exceptional presenters. Schools are encouraged to stream the event in a central place so that their entire staff can attend together.
