All adults (not just parents) are encouraged to feel empowered to remind kids of these norms as needed. It is part of integrating kids fully into our community. Please email Katie ([email protected]) if you have feedback or additional suggestions. We'll be posting a list of norms soon, and will revisit as needed.
With Our Whole Hearts
I hope the stories of faithful living and opportunities for engagement featured in this month's newsletter will bring you encouragement and nourish your spirit. My prayer is that in these turbulent days, each of us might find space—even if only for a few moments—for the refuge, rest, and renewal that will allow us to be who we are called to be.
