Interview: Julie McGonigle 

Christian education is the preferred choice of many parents, but there is a spectrum of what ‘Christian education’ means, from extremely evangelistic Christian schools to church schools who are faith-based in name only.

Julie McGonigle has been a teacher for 17 years, and her specialty is turning religiously segregated schools into integrated schools, where religion is part of the DNA of teaching and school culture. Now she’s working at St Andrew’s Cathedral School, helping the school develop a strong Christian ethos.

“I think the challenge is to make sure that young people are asking the big questions and coming to their own view about those,” Julie says.

Rev Keith Garner speaks with Julie in this week’s episode of Wesley Impact! TV.

Guest performance: Colin Buchanan – 10, 9, 8

Colin Buchanan has inspired a generation of children with his catch Christian songs. In today’s episode, he performs the enjoyable song ’10, 9, 8’.

Keith's message: Gratitude and blessing

Rev Keith Garner opens the Bible to Luke 17 and takes an in-depth look at the parable of the 10 lepers.

Rev Garner explains that just like the 9 lepers who didn’t return to thank Jesus, we can be ungrateful for the role that people have played in our lives. But gratitude opens the way for blessing.

Thankfulness is a key fruit of Christian character, so join Rev Garner for this important message.
