Shepherds Sayings

Jesus taught His followers how much God loved them when He said, “For only a penny you can buy two sparrows, yet not one sparrow falls to the ground without your Father’s consent. You are of more value than many sparrows. “ (Matt. 10:29,31)

GISD receives complaint for religious messages in staff emails

GISD Superintendent Dr. James Cowley and the Board of Trustees have received a letter from the Americans United for Separation of Church and State (AU), citing a complaint against Cowley for routinely including religious messages in emails to employees. The letter, dated September 8, also raised issue with Cowley forwarding an email to staff from Groesbeck First Baptist Church (FBC) Pastor Keith Collier, inviting them to attend and participate in a prayer initiative for the district before the fall semester began, and with a back-to-school gift for staff from FBC that included a prayer book and information about church services.
