Whether you're doing a Blessing of the Backpacks this fall, or your community is doing a Blessing of the Devices, we are providing you with a fun and colorful tag with a simple yet profound message: "Eres Amad@."
Please note that our translation of You Are Loved as Eres Amad@ is not a typo or a mistake. One of Illustrated Ministry's values is to use inclusive language, which is tricky with a gendered language like Spanish. After talking with some Spanish-speakers familiar with issues surrounding inclusion and language and doing our research, we learned of a few different ways to communicate the phrase "You Are Loved" in a more inclusive way. Rather than just defaulting to the masculine conjugation of "to love" – amado – we chose “amad@.” The at-sign (@), is often used by progressive Spanish-speakers who are finding more inclusive approaches to a traditionally gendered language.
Whether you're providing backpacks and school supplies to children at home, or you'd like to offer something to bless the digital devices many will use for virtual learning this year, these backpack tags are a simple way for your community to remind people that they are loved.
