Friend Investment
This week the 6th graders looked at Paul's letter to the Thessalonians with respect to relationship building. Teachers assigned a "Friendship Menu" in which students had to choose projects that strengthen their friendships. Reimagining how to love on friends during COVID-19 while maintaining social distancing was no small feat! Many encouraging emails crossed in cyberspace, Zoom board games occupied screen time, forgiveness and repentance statements flowed, and several presents and baked goods dropped on front doorsteps. Students were reminded that "friendship" is an action, one that requires intentionality, especially when staying physically apart is required.
