Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 ESV
Kindness Week is off to a great start! We had speaker, Brian Williams visit St. John’s yesterday and speak to Kindergarten through eighth grade. Every student who left that Auditorium yesterday felt empowered to spread kindness and make a change in the world around them.
Brian Williams, one of the nation’s top youth speakers, has challenged St. John’s Lutheran School to a massiveKindness challenge!! Our goal is to partake in 5,000 acts of Kindness before the end of the quarter on March 20th.
Brian is the founder of Think Kindness, a non-profit that inspires measurable acts of kindness in schools across the country. He speaks to over 100,000 students each year, has documented over 1.5 million acts of kindness, traveled to Africa 14 times and collected over 500,000 pairs of shoes for needy children and families.
Some of the main points Brian shared with the students were:
- Start Small
- Be Brave
- Be Kind
- No matter someone’s age, they can make the world a better place.
- Being kind starts with YOU!
All students and staff will be working hard to accomplish our goal of 5,000 acts of kindness by March 20th. We can CHANGE THE WORLD!
