Today marked the start of the 2017-2018 academic year. Yesterday, Dean Jane Georges welcomed new students at the new student luncheon and today welcomed faculty back from summer break by offering a prayer for the new year. Let us pray…

Dear Creator of the universe, whom we know by many Names:

 Be with us as we gather together here.

 We ask for your help for this upcoming year.

Let our school be a place of transformation for all of us.

Let our school be a place of healing.

Let our school be a place of kindness.

In every committee meeting we attend and every email we send, let us show respect and humility.

 On days when the burden is heavy,

Let us remember You are with us.

 Let us be friends with You and friends with each other.

Let us bear one another’s burdens.

 We thank you for the miracle of this School

And the miracles that happen here every day.

 Our times are in Your Hands.

We ask this in Your name.
