Character Trait of the Month – Faith

On Tuesday we will introduce Faith as our Character Trait for February.

Definition: Something that is believed especially with strong conviction; complete trust or confidence in someone or something; strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. (ESV)

Synonyms: Trust, belief, confidence, conviction, credence, reliance, dependence

Spiritual Emphasis Week (a long time Hargrave Tradition) also falls in February. Spiritual Emphasis Week is a week set aside in the Hargrave calendar in order to revitalize the spirituality of the Cadets, faculty, staff and the institution as a whole. This week falls approximately halfway between Christmas break and Spring break, where the moral and spiritual vigor of the student body seems to wane. This week is designed to be an uplifting experience for all involved.
