Core Practice 1: STORYLINE

Every Christian school classroom must have a powerful and compelling vision of the Kingdom that creates a longing and a desire within every student to play their part in God’s unfolding story of creation-fall-redemption-restoration. 

“And once you live a good story, you get a taste for that kind of meaning in life, and you can’t go back to being normal; you can’t go back to meaningless scenes stitched together by the forgettable thread of wasted time.  The more practiced stories I lived, the more I wanted an epic to climb inside of and see through to its end.”
Donald Miller

TfT believes that every unit and every learning experience tells a story.  The TfT program tries, using the story discovered in each unit of study, to create a powerful and compelling image of God’s story.  The TfT program invites students to imagine his or her place in God’s story – now.  The TfT program does this by connecting the story of each unit with opportunities to tangibly practice living in the grand narrative.  Each student and teacher will begin to create a personal “storyline” and articulate how they see themselves living in God’s epic drama.
