A Prayer for Inclusivity

 

Good and gracious God,

We confess

as we sit here in your house,

a place well all are welcome,

that our lives are not as welcoming as we should be.

 

We confess

that we do wish to love everyone

and we do try to love everyone

but it's just a whole lot easier

to love some people

compared to others.

 

We confess

that the people that tend to be

easier to love

also tend to be people

who look a whole lot like us.

 

All giving, all inclusive, all loving God,

open our hearts

that we may see all people

as reflection of You their Creator.

In that help us see that all people

look a whole lot like us.

 

Open us up to that kind of inclusivity.

Teach us to love with hearts wide open.

Inspire us to live lives that include everyone...

equally.

Grow us to be a people who exclude

no one for no reason.

Not for the color of their skin,

their sex or sexual orientation,

the money in their bank account,

the job they hold,

the religion they follow,

or the country in which they were born.

 

Teach us to always model your all inclusive love,

that is so wide open that it forgive us,

even when we don't include others.

AMEN

    Recycle Your Cans - Donate to the Community! 

     

    We have a wonderful, easy charity fundraiser that is ongoing at Bishop E.Q. Jennings!   As an EcoSchool, we are always looking for ways to help reduce our impact on the environment.  One way is to bring in your empty pop cans and place them in the RED recycling bin located beside the school in our parking lot.  ReCool will pick up the cans and pay us for the aluminum, which we then donate to local Charities.  This helps reduce Global warming and at the same time helps benefit our community. Thank-you for your anticipated support!

    Improved Parking Lot

    Parents: Please drive to the end of the school building to pick up or drop off students.  The main doors should only be used for parents or students arriving late or leaving for appointments/illness during the day.
