Sunday, September 10, 2017, @ both services All children, youth and adult teachers are invited to the 10am service for this dedication blessing. Ours is a lifelong journey walked by many generations. Through the years our insights, questions and understandings deepen. We need the company of one another to teach, to question, to encourage. We are shaped by many things:
Wisdom that deepens us, Experiences that stretch us, Mentors who share their insights and their questions, Communities that center us, that affirm us, that hold us in their care.
Our children will live in the world we leave them. They will live with the problems we have not yet handled. We cannot tell them how to live in that future, but they are learning from us right now. What values, what passwords, do we as a community need to transmit to our children that will give them the tools they will need? The time our teachers spend teaching, caring for, and being with the children of this community is a special ministry. Our teachers offer a very important nurturing time for our next generation. We are extremely grateful for our teachers who shepherd these precious children during the early years of their spiritual life.
