Through our character – an opportunity to reflect on important issues in our community
– New research has found that the skills to succeed in life have less to do with how smart you are than with more ordinary personality traits, like an ability to stay focused and control impulses. Character does matter. (Paul Tough, “How Children Succeed”)
Through our prayers — an opportunity to pray for the needs of our community
– Pray for the strength to grow and mature in areas that do matter: faith, love, hope and even self-control.
