The season of “Back to School” is upon us, and as much impact that COVID has upon all of our plans and this new school year, at least one ritual has stayed the same—that of preparing our children’s backpacks for school. While there are some new and unique items included this year, such as facemasks and hand sanitizer, there are also some items that are essential, although they are not on any of your Walmart or Lewis lists. This week’s message will focus on these “essential items” that will be the basis of success as we embark on a new school year. And by the way, they are “essential” for all of us! Lord willing, see you Sunday!
