How We Pray – January

Our daily chapel program nurtures the spiritual growth of each child in a non-denominational setting. We gather as a school community to explore, discuss, sing, and celebrate.

Greetings of Love!

 

Chapel is off to a great start in 2018!

 

We continue to participate in weekly chapels that include: lessons on faith and world, NAES collect, guest speakers, mindfulness, and student-led celebration chapel. Perhaps my favorite part, each day chapel is brought to life by the singing and music of our community.

 

We have been living into the season of Epiphany in creative and exciting ways. Epiphany means “to cause to appear, bring to light, or show forth.” It is a season of paying attention to where God’s light and love shows up in world. In the Episcopal Church, we focus on Jesus’ life and mission, where Jesus invites us to “come and see” and “go and tell.” So, this season is about listening, paying attention to where God is woven into the fabric of ordinary moments, staying open to surprise, and telling others about what you’ve found!

 

Thus, in chapel we have learned about parables from the Gospel of Luke through the parable of the Lost Sheep and the Prodigal’s Son. We will keep exploring where God’s light and love are found in this season of Epiphany through learning about Buddhism, The Bahá’í Faith, Islam and Hinduism. We are so excited to learn about the many beautiful ways that God’s light and love shows forth through different expressions of faith!

 

May we all have ears to hear, eyes to see, and hearts open enough to receive the light and love of God that is all around us.

 

Love,

Kelsey Davis
