Deans' Note August 22, 2021
The St. John’s Social Witness Committee invites our St. John’s family to be prayerful and thoughtful as we reach out to our community to “love our neighbors as we love ourselves.” We plan to always “strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.”
In this time of COVID there are serious challenges to our most vulnerable, valuable population: children. We are committing to ensure, enable and enrich them so we can all have a future. Pray with us as we discern how to partner and support the safe, effective delivery of education at an elementary school in our neighborhood. Three elementary schools are within two miles of St. John’s. Pray with us as we reach out to the principal to determine if we can connect and support the work of the school. Pray with us as we determine the efficacy of “walking and working alongside” of our neighborhood school.
“Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.”
Psalm 127: 3]
