Schoolwork is Work Too: September 6 NewsletterNewsletter / Produced by The High Calling
Search Google for “images of work” and you’ll get endless pictures of office workers in front of laptops. But it would be just as true to see rooms full of kindergartners, or teachers standing at whiteboards, or young people people frantically studying at the university library. Schoolwork is part of God’s plan too. This week, our writers examine the experience of school from a God’s-eye view. (P.S. We have a curriculum for young kids about how their work matters to God; you can find it here.)
