-A A +A

Fr. Colin Kelly will begin a three-part teaching series about how to respond to the terror of bullying during the 6:07 p.m. Contemporary Service starting Sunday at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church, 3900 Trinity Dr.
Stories of bullying in schools, in the workplace and even in churches are increasingly appearing in the nightly news.
A recent news story on KRQE 13 reported a mother’s outrage over the alleged bullying of her son by two of his classmates.
Roberta Lujan said her 12-year-old son Margarito was at school at the Pojoaque Valley Sixth Grade Academy when two of his fellow classmates began bullying him.
She said they took magic markers and wrote all over her son’s face, arms and neck. She said the boys also poured orange juice in his backpack, destroying his cell phone and books.
What is bullying? It is a form of intentionally manipulating, dominating and intimidating to control another person. Bullying appears to be on the rise and many victims often feel helpless in the face of these attacks.
Join Kelly at 5:17 p.m. Jan. 22, Feb. 12 and Feb. 22 for a meal, then stay for the service and teaching at 6:07 p.m.
