A Season of Thanks
Thanksgiving is here, and this season brings many beloved traditions for our school family. Last Friday was our annual Thanksgiving Feast at the Bridgewater campus. Devoted parents decorated tables and set out abundant food. Children (and their teachers!) dressed as Pilgrims or Native Americans. Grandparents served turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. We all gathered around tables to sing, pray, eat and celebrate together. Every year, the feast is a picture of all that is so precious and valued here at BRCS.
I asked a handful of children and teachers to share one thing they are grateful for in this Thanksgiving season. Here’s a sample of their responses:
- God’s love
- Friends and family and books
- My children
- The ability to worship God freely
- God’s salvation, that Jesus died on the cross
- My mom and dad
- My job at BRCS
- That we can come to school and talk about God
I heartily agree with that whole beautiful list. Here’s one item of my own: my gratitude for the partnership that BRCS has with our families. It’s an enormous blessing to come alongside like-minded parents to educate our children for God’s glory.
I pray your Thanksgiving holiday with your family will be a wonderful time of celebrating all of God’s good and perfect gifts! Happy Thanksgiving!
