SHARING YOUR LIGHT
As our students return to Religious Education classes next week, we listen to what Jesus taught his disciples and the crowd that gathered for the Sermon on the Mount.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.
Lord, we gather with a common heritage – our faith. We gather with a common purpose – to teach that faith.
As a small faith community, we pray for our students and ask that you show us how best to instruct them and share the faith with them.
We pray for our students’ parents and ask that you show us how best to support them as the primary educators of their children.
Help us, Jesus, to bring your light to the children of our parish
In the light of faith, Lord Jesus, help us to show one another how to live faithfully, hope joyfully, and love courageously. Amen.
