From the Headmaster

Thank you, Paul Coughlin and The Protectors, for challenging the students of Regents Academy to stand up and fight bullying and unkindness and spite. Thank you for calling our students to reject the contemporary “cruelty is currency” youth culture and instead make moral and spiritual courage the standard. Thank you for helping us see that all people are created in God’s image and are worthy of love and kindness. Thank you for helping us to see that one person who commits to become an active alongside stander – a protector – instead of being merely a passive bystander can change a life or a family for eternity.

 

We plan to follow up the message of The Protectors with a series of Bible studies designed to fuel the drive in our children to be courageous young men and women who stand for justice and show God’s love in a real way. C.S. Lewis wrote,

 

Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point, which means at the point of highest reality. A chastity or honesty or mercy which yields to danger will be chaste or honest or merciful only on conditions. Pilate was merciful till it became risky.

 

Doing the right thing and committing to be like Christ is not something to do simply when it’s easy. What really counts is to continue being justice-seeking and kind and truth-affirming even when it is risky – and to stand for the weak is a risk in youth culture. That takes real courage.

 

Lord, give our children courage, and give us the wisdom to lead them to be men and women who take up their cross and follow Jesus Christ.
