I wish we could bottle all the enthusiasm and excitement from the start of our school year so that I could release it in small doses later in the year. New clothes, new faces, new school supplies, and renewed attitudes all blend together to generate a liturgy of praise. This continues into the school picnic where the simplicity of sharing a grilled hotdog with old friends and new acquaintances becomes an opportunity to worship within the ecosystem that supports the Christian formation of our children.
