Luke 2:52 – And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.
As a young person, I participated in a camp whose mission was drawn from this Bible verse, with an emphasis on mental, physical, spiritual, and social growth. Having launched into the new school year, I am mindful of the many ways in which these four areas of growth are central to life at HSHM. New university students are volunteering at our warehouse as a way to grow in their social responsibility. The new president of Heartland Community College recently toured HSHM and is committed to the partnership between HCC and HSHM. New interns, work study students, and employees are learning their new roles at HSHM. Our child residents are getting acclimated to their schools, teachers, classrooms, and bus routines. Residents who are parents are learning their responsibilities related to their children’s education. Employees at HSHM are constantly learning and growing in our ability to work well together as a team for the glory of God. Jesus shows us the way to grow!
