North Augusta (South Carolina) High School 50th Reunion
Prayer by Marion Aldridge
May 23, 2015
Sustaining us always,
We give thanks for the gift of life,
for friends, teachers, coaches, family and all who have influenced us in our pilgrimage.
Also, we grieve for the loss of our classmates who have died too soon, dear friends, treasured relationships. We pause to remember them.
We trust your care for them and for us, now and forever.
Thank you for memories from our high school years, for the education we received in the classroom and in other places and in other ways: basketball courts and Teen Town.
We remember the words of Alma Mater: “Twas there the teachers lent their aid to guide our climbing steps, and taught us how to drink the cup of knowledge to its depths.”
A chapter of our lives ended when we graduated. Other chapters began. We are aware of your grace every step of the way.
Tonight, on this occasion of our fiftieth high school reunion, we thank you for the opportunity to renew old friendships.
We also thank you for those who have worked hard to make this reunion a success. Keep us safe until we gather again. Amen
