"Today we have a language to celebrate waywardness, but not a language to bring people back home." This is the lament of Makoto Fujimura. The Japanese Christian is also an accomplished artist, employing ancient techniques in today's complex art scene in New York City.
The Principal's blog this week explores two artists who have similar faith backgrounds, but communicate their different worldviews divergent ways. Check out the Principal's blog to see a video from Mr. Fujimura and read why we believe there needs to be a Biblical worldview communicated through the arts.
Traditions abound throughout the Christmas season. Many in the Fergus Falls community have a tradition of ushering-in the Christmas season with the Hillcrest Academy Christmas Concert. We invite you and your friends to participate in this tradition through the use of Hillcrest's LiveStream service.
Dominican Republic Presentation at Local Grade School
One of the most challenging aspects of returning from a mission experience is communicating the level of spiritual and emotional development experienced throughout the trip. Hillcrest's Dominican Republic team is working to continue to represent Christ in like-manner from what they experienced in the Dominican Republic.
This past week students led a chapel service for Morning Son Christian School, a local grade school. Students shared testimonies and worked to communicate the Dominican culture that many have fallen in love with.
We invite you to view some of the testimonies from this service at Hillcrest's Campus Ministries Blog.
