It was another work day at school yesterday. I got my bulletin board done. I want to use the Getty’s “By Faith” in chapel this year and showed it to our pastor. He likes it and to go along with it, has decided that we are using Hebrews 12:1 and 2 for our Bible verse of the year. To make it easier for the little kids to remember, he pulled out three phrases: “Surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses, let us run the race, fixing our eyes on Jesus”
For my bulletin board, I used a technique I’ve used before: copying pictures from an old yearbook. In this case, its a yearbook from 2006/2007 – ten years ago. It’s my “cloud of witnesses” – students who have attended the school in the past. I’ll of course talk about the current student body being a cloud of witnesses too.
The other boards I worked with yesterday were the white boards I got off of Craigslist. I pulled off my co-worker Kayla’s old chalk boards (which were painted sheets of metal), drilled new holes, and screwed in the white boards. It was made much easier by the fact that there was a ledge under the old black boards that held the white boards while I drilled and screwed.
