We are in more than the education business. We are co-laborers with parents and churches in the student development business. And whether we like it or not the swirl of a pandemic, urban and racial unrest, not to mention general life, work and family stress makes our work as educators more challenging than ever. But there are unique opportunities these cultural moments are creating. Barna’s latest research, in collaboration with the American Bible Society, examines the impact of these traumas and stresses as well as encouraging discoveries made the point to unique ways we can more effectively journey with families and students during these difficult season.
