Resurrected Living
"What are you going to do with your new resurrected life? This is the heroic question." Richard Rohr

Back to School

This week many kids will go back to school.  This is an exciting time as they reconnect with friends and prepare for their future.  We should be thankful for all our wonderful schools and so many great teachers.  Even though we have many outstanding schools and teachers they cannot protect children against every danger or evil influence.  It is the job of parents to prepare their children for the challenges they might face.  The church should be a source of encouragement to students, parents, and teachers.  Here are a few reminders for us all.

Students: Being popular is not important, but being a Christian is.  Choose your friends wisely.  Remember that you wear the name Christ and you represent Him at school and everywhere else.  Be kind to your fellow classmates who do not fit in.  Just because it is popular does not make it right.  Make your school a better place by living like Christ and encouraging others to do the same.

Parents: You are the most important person in your child’s life.  Take an interest in what your child does and the activities they are involved in.  Talk to your child everyday about what happened at school.  Bring your child to every church service and activity possible.  You can never remind your child enough of how much you love them and how much God loves them.

Teachers: Treat every child as if they were your own.  Remember that every child does not have the same privileges as your child.  They may not have been taught right from wrong.  They may not get enough to eat.  They may have never attended church.  Begin and end everyday with a prayer.

Church: Remind each child that they are not special because of what others think or say, but because they belong to God and they were bought for a great price.  Attend a school activity to show your support.  Encourage every child.  Be there for every parent.  Thank every teacher.  Pray, Pray, Pray!!!
