Does God Exist?

2018-11-04T02:54:23+00:00

It is important to correctly answer questions of the existence of God.  Biblical Christianity asserts not only the existence of God, but that Jesus, the Son of God, paid the price for the salvation of any who call on His name for forgiveness of sin.  Eternity is at stake.  But, the world is offering lots of noise about whether God exists or not.  Equipping a generation of young people to stand firm in their faith is a value we hold at Decatur Christian School. The 12th grade Bible class at DCS studies worldviews from the Summit Ministries Curriculum, Understanding the Times.  [...]

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now. When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image, and the breath of that universal love which bears and sustains us, as it floats around us in an eternity of blist.

Stained Glass Art

Stained Glass Art “I’m cutting glass on a ring saw, which you use when you use when you are trying to get more delicate curves in the glass.  It’s easier than just using a regular glass cutter because that usually only cuts straight edges,” said Alice.  A ring saw uses ice and cold water to keep the saw from overheating while it is cutting the glass.  This is a safe way for students to cut the glass pieces designed for the artwork. Kately also added, “I wrapped the pieces in the copper foil.  I found a picture of a tulip online, [...]
