The KHCS family just finished a beautiful commemoration of the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ. My heart is overflowing! What a joy it was to hear our students sing of Christ’s death in our place! To hear Pastor Joe Boulanger read Luke’s account of the death of Jesus. To hear KHCS parent and my good friend Russell Jackson give a dramatic reading of James Weldon Johnson’s powerful poem, “The Crucifixion.” To hear a choir of our students, faculty, and staff singing of the cross, the wonderful “Mercy Tree.” To have the privilege to preach about the meaning of Christ’s death from 1 Peter 3:18–that Jesus died for our sins, in our place, as our substitute, in order to bring us to God!
Good Friday is a special day for us. In some ways, it’s the very reason KHCS exists. We will always strive for academic excellence. We are deeply convinced of the importance of things like athletics, fine arts, and other extracurricular activities. But we exist because of what Jesus accomplished on the cross on the very first Good Friday. We exist because of what Jesus accomplished by leaving the tomb on the first Easter Sunday.
As our children just sang with such energy, “Jesus, Thank You!”
