In the January 21 issue, LinC looks at the movie Freedom Writers, the true story of a teacher who challenged her students to do incredible things in the face of extraordinary odds. As Christians, we call a teacher our Lord and Savior. Teaching was an important part of Jesus’ earthly ministry, and Christ’s teachings show Christians of every age how to be faithful to God and one another. Key Scriptures: Malachi 3:1-3; Matthew 11:28-30; 1 Corinthians 13:1-13; Galatians 1:11-24.
In the January 28 issue, LinC explores the topic of calling and vocation. America loves to watch people compete for their dream jobs on TV—whether it be as singers, dancers, or executives working for Donald Trump. But most people don’t find their vocations by appearing on a reality TV show. As Christians, we should seek our vocations by listening to God’s call and identifying our spiritual gifts.
