Bridge Chapel - March 15, 2017
Mrs. Hampton’s speech class performed for the Bridge Academy this morning during the beginning of their chapel time. Two groups spoke from different passages of Scripture using “Reader’s Theater.” The first group recited the Parable of the Weeds while the next group took their passage from Paul’s encounter with God on the road to Damascus. After their performances, Mrs. Legg, one of the Bridge Academy teachers, took the time to explain and reflect on the passages that were performed. Concerning the Parable of the Weeds, Mrs. Legg challenged the students and faculty to ask themselves, “Are you pretending to ‘walk in Him’, or are you really doing it?” She directed them to passages such as 2 Corinthians 4:3-6 and Isaiah 43:1-3a in order to emphasize being “light” in the world while also proving to them the sovereignty of God over His people. Moving to the story of the Apostle Paul encountering Jesus on the road to Damascus, Mrs. Legg encouraged everyone to be the light to those around them as they live their lives. Christians can do all of the “right things,” but if their lifestyles and actions do not reflect what they say they believe, then those around them will not see the light of Jesus. Wrapping up their time together, Mrs. Legg encouraged all to practice being a living light of the Gospel as they continue to grow and learn more about what it means to walk in Jesus Christ.
