The Anatomy of a Lockdown

The students at Williamson Middle School and Pastor Robin have worked together before on a few pieces for Common Good Radio, and we always look forward to our opportunities to talk with the Radio Club about kindness, peace, honesty, and leading good lives. But recently there was a lockdown out their school because of an outside threat. Hear them describe what it was like for these middle school students to experience this in their school, and how they dealt with the stress of the situation. 

Peace Project with Victor, Kevin, and Caroline

Pastor Robin and Cass were super impressed when they got into the topic of respect and peace with three middle schoolers at OUTWARD! in Syracuse last month. How do leaders of the world today differ from Jesus and the leaders of Roman times? How do people gain respect and keep it in this world? How do we lead, and what do people look for in leaders? Is it possible to do this all peacefully? What can we learn from scripture and the teachings of Jesus when we ask ourselves these big questions?

It's hard to draw conclusions for day-to-day life from history class, but these kids are most definitely making the connections. Listen in!
