Blessing of the Backpacks – Update

In response to my previous post about the blessing of the backpacks for children and youth this coming Sunday (August 13, 2017), I received the following via email:

It would be cool to have school personnel bring their work bag or something they use at work and bless them as well.  They need our prayers, too.

I think that’s a great idea! I would like to encourage school personnel to bring their work bags to worship, but even if you don’t we’ll be praying for you.
