Story by Miranda Alvarez
The Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education (MAEOE) recently named Chesapeake Conference’s Frederick (Md.) Adventist Academy (FAA) a Maryland Green School. The nationally recognized award honors the school’s efforts toward sustainability, the reduction of environmental impact and environmental literacy. The award acknowledges the various initiatives implemented by FAA since 2014, when the school began its intentional move toward a more eco-conscious culture.
Go. Tell. Serve. Three words, simple and straightforward. Yet when they are lived out in the name of the Lord, the impact is both profound and eternal.
Jesus modeled these three words for us throughout His life, and, as His followers, He directs us to go in His name and do likewise—to go and tell of His love and grace, to serve others as though we are doing so for Him. This is the purpose in His call to follow Him.
Essential to our effectiveness is that we ourselves know Jesus and accept His love and grace. When we have a personal experience with Him, we have a message to share and a pure motive to serve others.
