9:15-10:30 - "In the Beginning was the Word": Being Counter-Cultural in the Classroom Lets begin at the micro level! The English classroom is the epitome of stuffy academia. When the study of English begins with John 1:1, it opposes the father of lies (John 8:44) and, translated into action, makes stuffy into steely.
11:00-12:15 - "Unless I wash you": Being Counter-Cultural in LeadershipLet's go to another level. When leadership begins with John 13:8, schools are able to be the light on the hill. Being a Jesus leader is to be a resurrection leader.
1:15-2:30 - "Renewing of your Mind": Being Counter-Cultural through InnovationWe're now at the peak. When innovation begins with Romans 12:2, our children understand that we truly want something different for them than the Gentiles do.

9:00-10:15 - "What Good is it?": Being Counter-Cultural in Leadership of Money We're coming down the other side!! Understanding money as moral as well as arithmetic, as John 2:14 as well as Luke 14:28, makes your school and employer with integrity.
10:30-11:45 - "Prince of Shalom": Being Counter-Cultural as a Community Let's practice resting before we leave. When we rest with Jesus as in Luke 2:14, we discover another reality that can infuse our schools and teach our children very different lessons. Whether in pace of action, in schedule, in the yearly calendar, or in our adult practices, we are to model a counter-cultural Creation in with Let There Be Light!
