One of the sublime objectives of Bloomfield Christian School is to proclaim Jesus Christ in everything we do. Our recent Cotillion at historic Meadow Brook Hall showed that as His “bold ambassadors,” BCS students can witness their faith even in how they eat – and how they dance.
We know this is the case because, year after year, the most impartial observers of our students at this event tell some of us from BCS how much they enjoy our use of their breathtaking facility. Even in the twelfth year of our annual Cotillion, several Meadow Brook staff people and ...

“Today our country seems to be lacking courageous people, and given the many horrible events that have happened throughout the world in recent times, there has never been better a time to stand up for Biblical values, your family, or your nation.” Matthew Kasinec, Class of 2019 Bloomfield Christian School (This article was originally published on http://goodguyswag.com)
I hope Matthew’s article encourages other young men and women of faith to get out there and share their voices because they are tomorrow's leaders. --Kris Wolfe, Founder/Editor http://goodguysw...
Living Life Liturgically
by Sam Tobias, Senior at BCS
In October of 2016 my classmates and I had the privilege to attend the Streaming conference at Rochester College. On this particular day of the conference, the Calvin College professor James K. A. Smith was speaking about his new book entitled You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit. In his presentation Smith brought attention to the significant effect of our habits on our character. Our daily practices shape our worldview and soul. We call these habits our liturgy.
If you mention the word ...
Lessons of The Great Flood
The following is a guest post by Brian Daigle, headmaster of Sequitur Classical Academy, the classical Christian school in Baton Rouge. As I wrote last week, from the beginning of the flood, Brian has been in action to help flooded-out families from Sequitur, and others. (And not only Brian: Thomas Achord, head of the rhetoric school at Sequitur and teacher of ancient Greek, took his bass boat out as part of the Cajun Navy, and rescued people from their rooftops.) Brian has led a team of boys from the school in mucking out ...
My husband and I have a rather bad habit: we love to buy books for one another. While, as teachers and bibliophiles, this may not seem like a habit we need to ‘kick’ anytime soon, the bookshelves and closets and even the basements of our parents’ homes have had about all they can take. But when we come across books that relate to both teaching and our love of the classics, how can we resist? Last year, as I was in the thick of teaching The Odyssey to my 9th grade students, Clinton purchased Louis Markos’ From Achilles to Christ to aid me as I made fresh ...

Religion directs and controls our lives. It is not a question of whether people are religious, it is only a matter of which religion a person serves. This religious orientation is often not acknowledged in our day, yet God's creatures cannot escape this fundamental truth of their nature. They may worship false gods, or they may worship the true God, but they will worship someone or something. Someone's religion controls every school. Every religion vies for power and control of our culture.
One of the most useful tools in the quest for this power ...

Good evening, faculty, family, and fellow students. Thank you for being with us as we celebrate the end of one season and the beginning of another. In all of this, we are so very blessed.

Why Athletic Competition Should be Important to American Christians
At a time when American cultural norms seem to clash with traditional Christian values more than ever, American Christians find themselves faced with a difficult dilemma. For much of American history, culture and Christianity got along quite well, even if they were not completely compatible. Now, there is little doubt that the trend in modern America is away from religion and away from the traditional American way of life. Accordingly, many American Christians who remain devoted to their faith have ...
