A Christian Worldview: What Is It?

Spiritual Formation with Tyler Groves

Welcome to the newest section of the monthly newsletter! This portion of our newsletter will be dedicated to discussing and exploring issues related to a Christian worldview. Worldview is a word you’ll hear regularly around the Hartfield community. It seems appropriate to start by asking the question, “what is a worldview?” 
Roger Erdvig defines worldview as, “an organized framework of assumptions, desires, and habits.” You have a worldview. I have a worldview. Your children have or are developing a worldview. Everyone has a worldview. We all assume things about the world. We all desire certain things based on those assumptions. We all form habits based on those desires. At Hartfield, and as Christians, we should desire to continually align our assumptions, desires, and habits with God’s will for our life. The Apostle Paul said it this way. “We all, with unveiled faces, are looking as in a mirror at the glory of the Lord and are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory…” 2 Corinthians 3:18. 

At Hartfield, we are unapologetically committed to helping our faculty, staff, parents, and students understand that a worldview centered on Christ is the absolute best way to live life. This new portion of the monthly newsletter is another commitment to our vision of seeing every student fulfill their God-given purpose. I hope you’ll make it a priority to explore this section each month as we all work to develop a worldview that is continually becoming more like Christ. 

What to Expect:

Next month we will explore how what we assume about the world impacts our lives.
