Elementary:

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

The Bible says, "Be content with what you have" (Hebrews 13:5).

Jesus teaches us that the "stuff" or "things" in our lives should not be our main concern.

Instead, we should pay attention to learning about the love of God,

trusting that God will provide for us. 

Selfishness and greed lead to fights while love and gratitude may lead to peace.

Let us pray.

Dear God, we thank you for your many gifts of love and life.

Enable us to be content and ready to share with others who are in need,

so that all may experience being part of the family of love that flows from you,

our God, who live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.

In the presence of Jesus and all Christians we move into our day with hearts convinced that we can make a powerful, peaceful difference in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.​


High School:

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

On this day in 1948 Mahatma Gandhi was killed by extremists in India. Gandhi taught a way of peaceful change in India and South Africa. He spoke out against all forms of violence. He echoed Jesus' messages of love and forgiveness. He gave his life for his values and the people he cherished.

The Bible says, "Be content with what you have" (Hebrews 13:5).

Jesus teaches us that material things should not be our main concern.

Instead, we should strive first for the reign or love of God and its values,

trusting that our God will provide for us. 

Violence is rooted in selfishness and greed.

Love and gratitude must be part of our response to violence.

We can learn to be content through prayer and through an attitude of gratitude.

Let us pray.

Compassionate God,

we thank you for your bountiful gifts.

Give us the grace to accept all blessings

in simplicity and with humble gratitude.

Enable us to be content and ready to share with others who are in need,

so that all may experience unity in the love that flows from you,

our God, who live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.

In the presence of Jesus, Gandhi  and all Christians we move into our day with hearts convinced that we can make a powerful peaceful difference in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
