Elementary:

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Today is the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr., the American leader of the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s. Listen to the dream of unity spoken by Martin Luther King Junior:

"I have a dream that one day, all people will be created equal.

I have a dream that one day, we will all be able to sit down together at the table.

I have a dream that one day, we will live in a nation where people will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by who they are.

This will be the day when all of God's children will join hands and sing freedom."

Jesus' great love commandment invites us to love God and our neighbours as ourselves.

Let us pray:

Dear God, each one of us is Your work of art,

We are all your children.

We are all born "colour blind" and welcome all.

Help us to be colour blind in our hearts.

Help us look at the inside of a person

and see the best in them.

We ask in Jesus' name. Amen.

Arm in arm as the children of God we continue our day in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.​

God of harmony and unity,

You call us to work together to build your kingdom.

May our ears clearly hear your voice

May our eyes see your beauty in all peoples

May our understanding break down walls of fear and prejudice.

May our schools

Be places of friendship

places of belonging

and places of welcome

where everyone feels safe.

where everyone has a place

where all are united in You, dear God.

Arm in arm as the children of God we continue our day in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
