Earlier in the Fall my husband and I took a trip to Colorado just for fun. We spent a week exploring Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, and many little towns in between. By far the most memorable part of our trip was the constant presence of the towering mountains beside us. Their sheer magnitude demanded our attention and lured us in.
We took a lot of pictures in Colorado. One of the things I’ve been thinking about as I scroll through them and remember all the marvelous sights we saw is how God didn’t cut corners when He created nature. He made a world for us that can sustain us and He did it with style and excellence. He could have carbon copied leaves, making every one look just the same. He could have created everything flat and monotone. He could have created this world in a very simple fashion that would have still met our basic needs, but that’s not the kind of God He is.
God Doesn’t Settle
No, God doesn’t settle for “okay.” He went all out. He made a world that is majestic and awe-inspiring, just like Him. He made trees vibrant with color and life, just like Him. He made mountains so large and dramatic that they demand our attention and lure us toward them, just like Him. He made this world with excellence because He is excellent.
Striving for Excellence
One of the things I love about PCA is that they approach education with excellence. From history to art to music to lunch and recess, every aspect of the educational experience is flooded with excellence. There is no settling for “okay” at PCA. No, we give it our all and do our best to provide an educational experience for our students that is alluring and challenging and excellent.
I say “we” because this is a group effort, on the part of the board, the staff, and the families involved in the school. We make up the school, and I know from my vantage point, I’m very excited to be a part of an educational community that doesn’t cut corners but offers the best we have to our students. From my experience with other similar schools in Nashville, the result is likely to be a group of students who stand out and lure others toward Christ. What an invaluable gift to give our children! I love this school.
