Christian Education Day Letter

This is the day that the Lord has made! I rejoice and am glad in it! What a
privilege it is to serve God and our Zion as the General Secretary of the Christian Education
Department. I am greatly encouraged by the ministry of Christian education at every level of our
denomination.

The third Sunday in September is Christian Education Sunday. This practice was established many
years ago and is designed to allow churches throughout Zion to emphasize the importance of
Christian Education. This year’s theme is “iLight.” As 21st Century Christians, we are called to
reMbuild our communities by shining in a world of darkness. With the challenging issues we face in
our nation, as a race and as a community of faith, it is critical for us to help people distinguish
between darkness and light. We should shine so that those in darkness will chose light! I have
attached the “iLight” covenant for churches to share during the worship service.
