"O Lord, you are our father; we are the clay and you the potter: we are all the work of your hands." -Isaiah 64:7

It’s amazing what power art can hold. In 1776,  Betsy Ross put together three symbolic colors and shapes that, though the arrangement changed as our country grew, can still bring a shiver and a tear to those watching them wave in the wind. Our flag is one of the strongest, most enduring pieces of American Art and today, at Christ the King, we had a very special ceremony to celebrate it. We lowered it to half mast as bagpipes played and students, parents, teachers, and valued servicemen and women watched. We remembered those who lost their lives on this day in 2001 and prayed for peace in the world, thanking God for the freedom he has blessed us with. We burned old flags that served us well, using their symbolism as a daily reminder of our love for God and country.IMG_4776 IMG_4779 IMG_4782 IMG_4784 IMG_4788 IMG_4790 IMG_4791 IMG_4795
