The words we use in our schools are very important. The Gospel of John begins with the words:
“In the beginning was the Word”. The word of God is called a “sword” (reference). The idea of communication is clearly an important Christian concept that is both abstract (language) as well as embodied (the person of Jesus). The story of the Tower of Babel is a reminder of the dangers that language can be. In our Christian schools, we must always be deeply sensitive to the words we use and the intended content/interpretation of those words.
