Lent is really about love - we remember that Jesus loves us so much that he came to forgive our sins and show us how to love. We journey from the victory of last year's Palm Sunday to the regret of ashes from the burnt palms.

Through the season we look at our brokenness while also add the space in our lives for the love of God to be our light and guide. We fast to make space in our lives for God's love, we give of our time and talents to show our love for others, and we pray more deeply because we want to spend more time with God, the love and centre of our lives.

It is the beginning of a new school year, and God is a God of new beginnings and new creations. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, new life, blessed it and called it good.

We give thanks for a new school year and for new beginnings. We give thanks that you call us good.

God of new beginnings, new life, and new journeys, you sent Abraham and Sarah into a new land ... walk with us, we pray, as we enter into a new year of learning, a new path, new opportunities. Amen.

Jesus went among the villages teaching. He called the twelve and began to send them out two by two ...

Creator God, you have made each of us in your image. You look on us with love: we turn to you with hope and joy. May we grow closer together this year, with you and each other. May all in our school work as partners this year: to share, to grow, to make a difference as people can when we walk 'two by two'. Amen.

Besides parents and grandparents, perhaps no one has greater influence in our lives than teachers. No doubt, most of us think of at least one teacher who touched our heart and changed our life in some way. Touching hearts and changing lives - that, in a nutshell, is the high call of teaching. It is a sacred and noble calling, yet one that is demanding and draining and at times disappointing. Know one key truth: Your efforts each day make a difference - for your students, for the future of our country, and for God's kingdom.

It is our prayer that, in the process of the year, you will come to have an even deeper appreciation of your God-given calling and your incredible potential to touch hearts and change lives. May God bless you and your ministry in 2018!
