A Prayer for the End of the Year

Administrative Council 5/2/2013

Christ, Teacher and Lord,
Bless all in this school
As we seek to end our year
With the grace you so generously provide.


We give thanks for the students
And the faculty, the administrators,
And all who have contributed
To this year of nurturing and growth.


We affirm all the positive moments,
Of insight, of the excitement of learning,
Of accomplishment, of creativity,
Of laughter, of a sense of community.


We recognize the times of struggle,
Of difficult work, of misunderstanding,
Even of failure--we give these
To you for transformation,
So they can become seeds
That will find fertile soil.


As we leave for the summer,
May we take with us
The knowledge that
You will keep us all
In your embrace so
We may rest and be restored
And so we can continue in
The ongoing discovery
of your Love.


Amen.
