The day after the tragedy at The Covenant School in Nashville, I visited their website while mourning. This school seemed so similar to the Christian Presbyterian school where I worked for many years as a supervisor of ministry childcare. Per yearly training, I instructed our team, thanks to the due diligence of our director, on emergency procedures in the event of an active shooter. As someone who grew up attending a Christian Presbyterian school (first grade thru twelfth), I never dreamed of one day training a team for these types of events. It was . . . unthinkable.
When I came across the post, Whatever by Dr. Katherine Koonce, my heavy heart was comforted. Dr. Koonce was Head of Covenant School until she suddenly crossed over into the presence of our Lord on March 27, 2023. Reading her post greatly encouraged and reminded me of the Biblical meaning and context for the word, whatever, and how we should actively apply it to our lives. While some may choose to be active shooters, may we choose to be active pursuers of whatever.
Click on Whatever | The Covenant School so you can read her post, dated April 30th, which appears to be written during the challenges of 2020.
After reading, I shared a link to Dr. Koonce's post on my Facebook page. Her decision to be an active pursuer of the word, whatever, touched so many people (with 1.3K shares) and continues to be spread throughout and read. Her post, that came from spending time with the Lord, reminds me of Isaiah 55:11 (NLT) - It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.
While some may choose to be active shooters, may we choose to be active pursuers of whatever.
