Open Letter from The Covenant School

~ An open letter of gratitude from The Covenant School to the Nashville community ~

“It has been a little over four weeks since March 27. Four weeks since a line was drawn in the sand of our lives at Covenant, a line marking before and after, a line marking the moment when life changed, and we will never be the same.

Thus begins a letter of gratitude from The Covenant School and Covenant Presbyterian Church to the Nashville community.

The touching statement from the school which was the target of a disgruntled “transgender” former student bent on murdering children and staff of the Christian school continues with:

““Our Covenant community has spent much of the past four weeks focusing inward, picking up the pieces, putting one foot in front of the other, caring for each other and attempting to process the inconceivable.”

The letter describes a school attempting to navigate a new reality and trying to move on.

“This internal focus has not, however, prevented us from feeling the awe-inspiring expressions of love and support from the Nashville community and across the nation,” it reads.

“The bows on mailboxes and signs in yards are tangible evidence to everyone at Covenant that this town is grieving with us and showing their love and support,” it continues. “There are prayers pouring in from all over the city and beyond, and we feel them. Cards and gifts from across the country continue to show up for our students daily.”

“We are overwhelmed by the care this community has lavished on us, and the love we have felt from every corner of our nation. There are no words in the English language to express our gratitude to everyone adequately. They simply do not exist. Please know we see you and we feel your care and your presence.”

The letter concludes by naming Jesus as the “light of the world” and says that the love they have received during this tragic time has helped them walk in this light.

The letter from The Covenant School and Presbyterian Church ends by saying, “Thank you, Nashville. We love you too.”
