Unlocking the Low Door: Learning to Love Allegory

Unlocking the Low Door: Learning to Love Allegory by Lindsey Brigham An excerpt from: https://www.circeinstitute.org/blog/unlocking-low-door-learning-love-allegory   If anything defined my childhood summers, it was The Play. Every summer, my family would migrate from South to Midwest, trading the scent of summer-heated slash pine for that of fresh-mown prairie; every summer, my siblings and the cousins we’d come to visit would bask in being reunited for a few precious weeks after a year’s worth of letters and phone calls; and every summer, we’d take up ...

Parents, Require Obedience of Your Children

By John Piper  Taken from Pastor John Piper’s article, Parents, Require Obedience of Your Children.  Nine observations on obedience that “may rescue parents and teachers from the folly of laissez-faire” discipline.   1. Requiring obedience of children is implicit in the biblical requirement that children obey their parents. “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right” (Ephesians 6:1). It makes no sense that God would require children to obey parents and yet not require parents to require obedience from the children. It is part of our ...

Living Life Liturgically

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

Lessons of The Great Flood Rod Dreher 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 ...

The Purpose of Poetic Truth

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 ...

Schools Are Religious

By Robert R. Booth 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 ...

Made for Glory

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 ...
