"Now the beginning of discipline is humility. Although the lessons of humility are many, the three which follow are especial importance for the students: first, that he hold no knowledge and no writing in contempt; second, that he blush to learn from no man; and third, that when he has attained learning himself, that he not look down upon everyone else."
- Hugh of St. Victor, Didiscalion, 12th Century

Parent Academy: Family Movie Night - Sat., Jan. 15 [6–8:30pm]

As you know, we are "plugged in" to the digital world almost everywhere and at all times. This means our kids are being more and more conditioned to accept the rewards of entertainment and social interaction from online sources rather than from real human life. How should we raise our kids in this time, when the digital tide has risen so high and doesn't seem to be receding? This the topic of The Oaks' first Parent Academy event of the year!

Join us Saturday, January 15 for a time of fellowship and edification as we consider how to raise children amidst the flood of digital media. Beginning at 6pm, we will watch The Social Dilemma, followed by a conversation on parenting in this age. Light snacks and refreshments (popcorn, treats, & soda) will be provided, but feel free to bring your own. Seating is available for all, but you are welcome to bring your own comfy seat as well. This event is open to the whole family. We look forward to seeing you there!

January Scripture Memorization

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying "Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him." When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. So they said to him, "In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet: 'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel.'" Then Herod, when he had secretly called the wise men, determined from them what time the star appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and search carefully for the young Child, and when you have found Him, bring back to word to me, that I may come and worship Him also." When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshipped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Then, being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed for their own country another way.
