Blessing of the Back Packs – Great Idea for Start of the School Year

Thanks to Mary Hawes for highlighting this:

“With a little bit of adjustment, this could be a good way of blessing families as their children start school/go back to school/transition to a new school. I like the idea of a laminated luggage tag (or similar) which has a short prayer on it that can either be kept in the backpack or by the child’s bed.

It’s also a good way to raise awareness of the importance of education and maybe linking it with contributing towards school supplies either for a local charity that helps disadvantaged youngsters or a mission partner that does the same abroad”.
