Each month, we are going to be connecting a different aspect of running a race with the different aspects of life, beginning from the starting line (birth) all the way to the finish line and receiving the prize (heaven). As we work through each aspect of the race, it is our hope and our desire that our students are encouraged to run the Christian race well.
