Naperville Christian Academy's Literary Magazine
A Letter From the Editors
Copia - Abundance
Through this literary magazine, we hope that NCA students will be able to see beauty in new and different ways. There is an abundance of beauty within and outside of the walls of Naperville Christian Academy that deserves our attention. We want readers to be able to wrestle with, question, reflect upon, and marvel at the photography, language, music, and more of this small magazine. But our dream doesn’t end between covers of a book. We want people to be affected by this magazine so that they can learn to find beauty everywhere, through every culture, every place, every heart--because a love for beauty leads to a deeper and fuller love for the Lord. He has given us the ability to create, and that is a gift too often taken lightly. Through these works we can inspire others to showcase their God-given gifts and demonstrate how richly we have been endowed with the opportunity to both learn and create. Remembering that we are all created in God’s image, we hope to encourage a respect and love for each other through these talents which express who we are.
