A Time of Prayer

January 20, 2021 | Abby Hall Choi

Last week the middle school teachers thought and discussed about how we wanted to care for each other and our country on this inauguration day.

We read through a variety of resources. We found these two resources particularly interesting:

  • Political Polarization demonstrates how the Republicans and Democrats have changed over the last 60 years.
  • Allsides shows headlines articulated from sources from the right, center, and left.

 

We decided that we would host two times of prayer and singing today. We have missed gathering in multi-grade groupings. And we are grateful for this time to gather and pray to God.

 

We will hear this prayer from The Book of Common Prayer.

Look graciously, Almighty God, upon this land. 

Where it is in pride, subdue it. 

Where it is in need, supply it. 

Where it is in error, rectify it. 

Where it is in default, restore it. 

And where it holds to that which is just and compassionate, support it. 

In your holy Name, we pray.

Amen

 

Together we will sing words of blessing.

 

In our 6-8 time, we will sing:

May God give you eyes to see

All that is good, all that is good

The courage for anything

May you be strong, may you be strong

 

or

 

In our 4&5 gathering, we will sing:

This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine!

Let it shine!

Let it shine!

Abby Choi likes thinking about how people work together. She believes that students and teachers always want to offer their best work, but sometimes obstacles get in the way. She enjoys finding solutions that enable students and teachers to thrive.

Ms. Choi values caring for the whole person. She believes it’s most important that everyone knows they are God’s child and loved all the time, no matter what. She also thinks that students and teachers are interdependent and need to take care of each other.
She challenges our school community to consider how teachers and students can practice having fun, autonomy, competence, and also build relationships.

Ms. Choi really likes laughing and strives to find humor in daily life.
