From the Same Source
Our task in education becomes teaching our students to do all things whether they eat or drink or whatever they do to the glory of God. We do this by showing our students that everything they learn is a part of an integrated whole. Math is related to literature because they both come from God. They both express truth about the same unified being. Think about the sun. If we were somehow able to isolate rays of the sun, we could look at each one as something different and separate from the others. But we would know they are essentially unified because they radiate from the same source. We can follow each one back to its beginning and arrive at the same person. So here we see Christ as the center of the curriculum, and each subject has its own inherent legitimacy which it derives from its origin—Christ.
