Every year, Director of Christian Life, Greg Lisson, introduces the new theme at the first All School Chapel of the year. This chapel is filled with many special traditions: senior Evergreens (students that have been at Wesleyan Kindergarten – 12th grade) walk down the kindergartens, the chapel band is mixed with students from different divisions and many loved ones come to welcome and celebrate in the new school year.
This year, the theme is Your Kingdom Come. Every month, one aspect of the theme will be broken down and focused on by the middle and high school chapel speakers. Topics such as grace, truth, beauty and justice will be filled to complete the phrase. Lisson began the year with Your Kingdom Come. Next month, the topic will be, Your Grace Come.
Lisson shares that the theme was inspired by the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:10. Jesus talks about how he his desire for earth is to have features from similar to ones in Heaven. Lisson said, “All kingdom values and virtues are given to us by God; it is our job to pass His message on to the people around us.”
