Prayer for the New Year

Loving God,

Help us begin this new year with a renewed spirit of love and faith. When life's challenges seem to overwhelm us, may we rely on your friendship and love. When our classes cause pressure and stress, may we feel the sense of calm that faith brings. When we let faith work in our lives, everything falls into place. Life is filled with peace and everything takes on fuller meaning.

Good Stuff

What a great first week back! It was so nice to see all of you again after two weeks away, and it was great to see everyone come back with renewed enthusiasm and a sense of hope for the new year.

We could tell by the smiles on all of the students' faces how happy they were to be back with you again. Thank you for all that you do to make them feel welcome and loved!
