all the trees of the field will clap their hands. (Isaiah 55:12)
It was a spectacular week to be learning outside.
Nora perched; trees clapping behind her as she documented leaf rubbings in her hero’s notebook.
Listening to Robert Frost tell us through poetry that “nothing gold can stay,” we employed a range of perspectives to see our world.
Over the past two weeks we debuted t-shirts** designed by the heroes during their tribe-building quest.
Myla was the lead designer for the Elementary Studio version. While Lola was the lead designer for the Early Learning Studio version modeled by Asa below.
The prophet Isaiah describes the coming of Christ in the fifty fifth chapter and the trees clapping in response to His arrival. It suggests trees will become so much more in the presence of the Messiah. It suggests the rocks in the hills will become so much more as they sing the praise of the Anointed One in in their midst.
And I want to suggest that just like the trees and rocks around Journey Academy, each of us want to be changed by the presence of Jesus through our journeys as heroes.
May we all become so much more in His presence.
**stay tuned for more information about purchasing these hero designed shirts next week for Christmas.
