Non-discrimination policy and Christian Education

hh_international day_toleranceSchools become a place to learn not just numbers and grammar but also community building and social interaction. Non-discrimination policy is not anymore about skin color, ethnic origin or social status. It now also involves issues like disabilities, marital status (teen pregnancy), sexual orientation and of course religion; so it has to affect a Christian School. The word of these days is “Tolerance”.

It is time we, Christians, accept the intolerant part of Christianity without feeling insulted and recognize that the message we proclaim has an offensive part. In a Christian School we have the challenge to stand firm to our creed, maintain our values and hold unswervingly to the faith we profess in love, following the example of the Lord Jesus that could call hypocrites to religious leaders and say to an adulterous woman “neither do I condemn you”. What a beatiful balance of truth and grace!
