Let us learn of the goodness of the Lord.
We are going to look for clues.
Clues that show us the goodness of the Lord.
The goodness that comes when we take care of each other. Or when we walk in love.
In worship during the next couple of weeks, we are going to look for clues to help us consider the question: What does it mean to walk in love? Or to put it another way, What does it mean to care for each other?
When we are looking for clues about how to take good care of each other- I think we need to look at the Bible and stories from Jesus’ life.
We see through Jesus’ example that the way of love involves action. He teaches those that need to be taught, heals those that need to be healed, forgives those that need forgiveness, welcomes those that need to be welcomed, feeds those that are hungry, and ultimately sacrifices himself for the love of the world.
To walk in love means that we need relationships. It cannot be done alone. The invitation is to actively love others (and ourselves!) and welcome their love back. This is a beautiful, difficult, and vulnerable task. Fortunately, we have a map for this journey, Jesus shows us the way through his actions and teachings what it means to take good care of each other. What it means to walk in love.
We learn from Jesus that we need connection. With God. With ourselves and With each other.
Families- we hope that you will join us as we listen to stories to help us consider what it means to walk in love. We invite you to come and find a time of connection with God, Self, and others and a time of celebration.
We are going to hear many stories. I hope that you will join and I hope that you will help us consider the many answers to the question: “What does it mean to walk in love?”
Our eighth-grade students will be important leaders this year. The eighth graders will demonstrate what it means to take good care of each other. We will give each eighth-grade student a pin as a sign of our trust and their maturity.
Hear from school leadership about their hopes and plans for the new school year. Here are the transcripts of speeches from the Parent Tea.Learn More
