Lionel Rothschild's oath was altered in England through the help of Benjamin Disraeli. Disraeli is the only Jew to have served as Britian's Prime Minister. A firm believer in Jesus Christ, Disraeli was included in Os Guinness' timely book A Free People's Suicide: Sustainable Freedom and the American Future.
This week's Principal's Blog includes a lecture given by Mr. Guinness on his book and includes the rebirth and renewal of the Jewish, Puritan and American Founders as they sought to represent Christ in the world. Mr. Guinness' presentation is a good reminder and encouragement to us as we teach and train students to live a life of significance.
For many students, a class with Mr. Preston makes Mondays better. A staple at Hillcrest for over 20 years, Mr. Preston's history and Bible classes are practical and insightful.
The short video to the left is a devotional led by Mr. Preston in his Book of Mark class. It's a great video that gives perspective of the training and discipleship students receive each day at Hillcrest Academy.
Hillcrest's music program has a time-honored tradition of excellence. This week President Brue highlights that tradition and also comments on some of the exciting updates around HLA.
