In 1922, something remarkable happened. This development at the University of Toronto would change the world forever. It gave life to an otherwise hopeless portion of society. What was this incredible development that changed the world forever? Insulin.
Before the development of insulin, children diagnosed with diabetes did not have much hope for survival. The refinement of insulin gave otherwise hopeless parents, hope that their children would have a chance at an abundant life.
Prior to 1922, diabetes was like the thief Jesus talks about in John 10:10 who comes only to steal, kill, and destroy. Insulin changed all that for those diagnosed with diabetes. Much more important than any cure or treatment for a physical disease is what Christ has done for us spiritually. Jesus said that He came that we may have life and have it abundantly.
The beauty of a Christian education, and what we do daily at SJCS, is the ability to share and reaffirm through a Christ-centered worldview the abundant life Jesus offers us. As you consider re-enrollment for next year, keep in mind the longterm effect of a life-giving Christian education.
As a father whose two daughters both received a Christian school education, I can personally vouch for the immense benefit a Christian education had in shaping the course of their lives. We look forward to partnering with you again next school year to provide a life-giving, spiritually rich, academically rewarding education for your children.
