It is hard to believe, but we're nearing the start of the 4th quarter of our school year! April means a new edition of "What we're reading..."and as always, we hope that you enjoy this selection of writings that we have found to be interesting, inspiring, or otherwise thought-provoking over the past few weeks.
In this month's review, we take a look back at our recent journey through Lent and Holy Week with a great sermon for Palm Sunday by Immanuel's Pastor Esget, as well as a couple of reflections from ILS Music Teacher, Miss Marie Landskroener. Additionally, this month's articles include an examination of collectivism versus individualism, a podcast on bourgeois culture, a thoughtful exploration of marriage, a look from our friend Dr. Gene Veith on the first image of Christ on the cross, as well as a video examining the amazing construction of some 18th century Russian churches made without nails. Finally, we include a couple of books we've been enjoying that you may also find of interest!
As we approach the end of the year, please continue to send us anythings that you've enjoyed reading lately! We always love to see those as well.
