City Transformation: Education
- More than one in four children in our city is obese or overweight. Pray that healthy eating and exercise would be taught and practiced in our schools and home schools.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it” (Prov. 22:6). In his ministry, Jesus knew the importance of teaching and learning, of mentoring and discipleship. Our city has a smorgasbord of educational options at all levels, but politics, controlling special interests, economics, and family dysfunction often dilute or hamper the quality of education available. It isn’t enough to “Christianize” our schools. We need Kingdom thinking and creativity to bring transformation in all our educational systems.
