Backpack Blessing: September 3

Attention students! For our meeting for worship on September 3rd, you are invited to bring your backpacks, notebooks, or some other object that represents school to you.

We will take a few moments during worship to celebrate our students (and teachers!) and pray for you as you begin the school year.

We do this for many reasons. We want to support and celebrate our students and teachers. We want to remind them that God is with them. We want to emphasize our appreciation for the vocation of teaching. We want to celebrate the goodness and sacredness of learning. We want to communicate that the pressures and anxieties you may feel as a student are valid. And we want to remember that following Jesus and living the Quaker way extend to every sphere of our lives, including school.

Hope to see you there!
