This week I had the opportunity to witness the fellowship between students in the Masterworks kitchen. Over the course of the evening, various groups of students of varying ages gathered at the table (juice bar). Sometimes a teacher or two joined them, or a parent, and sometimes just children gathered, but always the mood was positive. I daresay the students walked away from there that day feeling a little bit happier and with a lighter spring in their step. One student was even heard to quip that she wished school could be as positive as Masterworks is!
To me, this highlights what an important role Masterworks plays in the lives of the students, and is also what sets Masterworks apart from other dance studios: Masterworks is not only a place to develop creative movement skills, but a place to be fed spiritually and to grow in God's loving grace. The positive atmosphere at Masterworks is no accident; rather, it is the result of ongoing prayer and the overarching goal to demonstrate God's love in daily living.
Let's continue to pray for the staff and students of Masterworks - that they will love what they are teaching and/or learning, and that each and every participant, volunteer, or staff will feel bolstered by this community of God's love.
