January 2013 - The New Worldview School - April 2013

Who is Jesus today? It should come as no surprise to hear that Canada is one of the most livable countries among over 200 nations on the globe. How does it make you feel when you hear that statement? Maybe it makes you proud, thankful, satisfied or hopeful to belong to the nation and to be Canadian? The same brand name Canada is also referred to as “Canada, home to the suicide capital of the world” by Maclean’s in their Apr 16, 2012 issue.

Worldview School

According to the magazine, in 2011, the Ojibwa First Nations community’s suicidal rate had nearly 20 times that of Canada – approximately 2,400 per 100,000, compared to 250 for the rest of Canada. Its numbers show by far the highest in the world. Surprisingly their suicide rate has consistently been this high for nearly 20 continued years. What happened to them in Canada? Last October, the suicide of Amanda Todd was shaking people up across Canada and worldwide. A 15-year-old teenager from Port Coquitlam, BC, had been tormented in her life by social-media bullying for many years. A month before her death, she posted her last hope on YouTube, “I have nobody. I need someone,” No one listened her. How could this have happened to her in Canada?

One side of Canada seems like a bright shining star, yet there are secretly hidden scars also hiding in the dark corners of life. Everyone has his or her own stories. However, many stories today have been kept in untold silence and ended up in tragic deaths like those Obijawa youths and Amanda Todd. Among those voiceless, then who can be listening to them and speak out their stories? Is there someone to look after the need of the suicidal person, to listen and tell them the reason to live?

Do you believe no one is out there for you?

Then listen to this: Humanities and Science: A Christian Perspective (Worldview School) is a core course in the University of the Nations, which is a Christian university affiliated with Youth With A Mission, the largest Christian mission agency. This course offers a uniquely designed eight weeks of Humanities themes and subjects and four weeks of science themes and subjects. This school simply reflects the various life-related questions: Who am I? What is the meaning of life? Why do we need the absolute God? Do I have a reason to live? Where am I going to after death?

This course is not for the philosopher; it is for someone like you and me, the ordinary people who are facing the reality or living in the virtual reality, while simultaneously asking life-questions and engaging in dialogues with someone from a different culture and religious background. This course facilitates this kind of self-searching-truth-process on a communal daily basis and a safe environment based on Jesus’ teaching and love. We welcome everyone who needs to know a true identity as an individual truth seeker and in a community setting. And searches for undivided meaning of nature and supernatural being on today’s history. The course aims to simply help them to find individuals’ place in this world, based on Philippians 4:8-9. "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."
