So I began with the prayer with the blog title here and then continued on with this:
“All the adults and all the children.
Dear Heavenly Father, please bless the adults with your wisdom and your guidance to complete a successful year.
And please bless the children with the determination to serve, to strive and not to yield.
In Jesus name we pray. Amen.”
Our Pack leader agreed, just before the inaugural meeting started – short and sweet – 1st & 2nd graders attention spans must be respected at 7PM.
There is an art to saying a lot with a little.
It works with 6 and 7 year olds, and it’s effective at work too.
