5 practices of investing/contending


God, be with our kids
beginning this new school year!

As they adjust to new rhythms,
new classrooms, new teachers,
captivate them with wonder and curiosity!

May imaginations expand
May minds be renewed
May hearts be filled
May these kids be formed to care well for this world,
which is theirs, ours, and Yours.

Amen? 
Amen!

 God, may your kingdom come  in our local schools as it is in heaven!  Keep our schools safe! But more than safe, Let love fill their classrooms Let joy dance in their hallways Let kindness reign on their playgrounds.  May learning and flourishing  take root in and through these schools from preschools to colleges traditional, home, and alternative for the sake of their students, their neighborhood, and Your World.  Amen?  Amen!
