Every person has a worldview. Most of the time, we aren’t even aware we have one, we just sort of pick it up along the way. A Worldview is a framework by which we interact with the world. Worldviews contain big things like our identity, values, and purpose, but they are also in the small things, like what we do on weekends. A teacher’s worldview will determine what and how we teach, but it will also shape how we take attendance and set up our classroom.
Christian teaching is a lot more than teaching Christian things, it also matters that we teach it in ways consistent with how and why we were made. But this still doesn’t quite cover all that goes into Christian education. To be a Christian school we need more than devotions, Bible classes, and chapels. Our worldview will shape how we teach and what we teach, but it will also affect how we take attendance, practice discipline and talk to the custodian. Our worldview dictates everything we do and even the way we think; this is why it is so important. Clarifying our worldview and aligning it with God’s word is a long process. The Worldview course will be a catalyst to begin, or continue, this journey.
