Pentecost Sunday – June 4, 2017
Gospel Reading: John 20:19-23
“Jesus came and stood in their midst, and said to them, ‘Peace be with you.”
The end of the school year is nigh. This is not always the most “peaceful” time of year, either for students or their teachers (let alone their parents). We are in the midst of end-of-the-year assignments, final examinations, and other pressing expectations. However, what an opportune time to recall that peace does not occur in a vacuum; rather, it is Jesus who gives us true peace. Remind your students to find peace and quiet in the midst of this busy time of year.
What are you doing to remind your students to remember the “big picture” of what they have learned this academic year?
