Day 1 of 64 Days of Peace: Courage

Today we started our 64 days of non-violence. Today's focus was on courage. We talked about courageous people throughout history such as Martin Luther King Jr and Helen Keller. We also talked about the need to be courageous in our daily lives, courage for standing up for what is right and what we believe in. Each child lit a candle and made a silent wish for peace and 'courage' as we start this journey then they blew out there candle.

The Spirit gives courage to fainting hearts.
A seed is planted, watered by prayer, courage grows reaching ever toward the light.
Standing in God's love, risks can be taken without fear of failure, and without fear of success.
Courage is walking this life's journey peacefully with no fear of others or fear of yourself.
