Prayer over a Sick Child

May it be your will O Lord to bring full health to my child(ren). Until that time, grant me the understanding and strength to help my child(ren) get through this sickness. Let me know the best way to make him/her/them feel better. Help me know when to give medicine and when to ride it out. Help me know how to best comfort him/her/them.

Although I know that you know that there are many reasons for my prayer, some more selfless than others, I really just want life to return to “normal” for all of us. Let my child(ren) be well enough to go back to school; not only so I can go back to work, but so he/she/they can be with their friends in an enjoyable and educational environment. Let my child(ren) act normally in the house again; not only so they can eat a regular meal and not vomit it all over me, but so he/she/they can get strong and grow and thrive.

Help me Lord be the best parent I can be to my child(ren) and help me find ways to help him/her/them and us return to our normal lives so we can go on doing the best we can in this world.

Learning to Say "We": Writing Identity

In this immersion, we will reflect and expand on our personal experiences of identity, using writing exercises and in-depth discussions to think about, challenge, discover, explore, and experiment with different ways to identify ourselves, to consider how those ways connect us to and separate us from others, and how they represent and misrepresent aspects of who we are.

Four sessions, starting June 15th
