It Takes a Village

Deuteronomy 31:12

We need everyone – even the “strangers” among us whom some people resent. We need everyone to proclaim that education matters, that our children matter, that our society depends upon a desire for learning.  

The Lord calls for worship, justice, and respect for one another – love of neighbor. 

A local Presbyterian minister spent a year attending the PTO meetings and the school board meetings and talking with the principal. Then she began working with the groups and involving the entire community. What a change has blessed the children at that neighborhood school!

Lord, from big cities to small towns, call us to assemble and be knit together in villages of support for one another and especially for our children. Amen.
