Making a Difference through Politics
TCS 8th grade Biblical Worldview students are finishing a unit on politics.They have learned what the Bible says about politics, the Christian’s responsibility as citizens, and looked at examples of Christians in the past who have shaped history by their political involvement. They discovered that they can make a difference in politics even before they can vote. The students each chose an issue they were passionate about and sent hand-written letters to local elected officials about bills that are currently under consideration. They learned that the most important role in America is that of a citizen, so they were excited to use their voice by writing to their elected officials.
