"Earlier in this century someone claimed that we work at our play and play at our work. Today the confusion has deepened: we worship our work, work at out play, and play at our worship."~~Leland Ryken

"Wonder is the workshop of worship. The child who wonders is moving toward worship."~~Steven Faulkner

"We have also been the beneficiaries of an extraordinary web of relationships. We have begun to understand that true education is more about a culture than it is about a curriculum. It's more about a way of life than it is a way of doing. A vision of what God's called you to than it is about a mechanical set of prescriptives that are to be implemented in your life. It is about relationships, about community, about the rich covenant into which you have been grafted by God's good providence."~~George Grant
