January – a month of Civic Engagement

Published on January 15th, 2021

This January is an extraordinary month of civic engagement, and opportunities abound for lessons and conversations in Lutheran classrooms:

  • Last week’s Capitol protest
  • The upcoming Inauguration
  • Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday observance
  • Marches for Life across the country
  • Black History Month in February

I encourage you to  square-off with COVID and keep it from overshadowing your classrooms, and this link underscores the importance of re-examining civic-minded history; if overlooked in the past, now is an extraordinary month to start!
