Repetition helps solidify things in our brains!  We also hope Saturdays and Sundays will be easier for parents/facilitators, since it’s already been followed, once. If another practice was more rich for your family, please feel free to go back and repeat whatever devotion suits you best. Alternatively, this can be an evening during which you share a devotion from a night that you might have missed earlier in the week.

Celebrating God's Promise

CREATE A SACRED TIME AND SPACE Leave all screens turned off and outside of the gathering space/room. Set a single candle in the center of your space or on a child’s nightstand or headboard.
As you light the candle, you might sing or say the call and response song, This Is the Day1 Leader: This is the day… Others: (This is the day…) Leader: That our God has made… Others: (That our God has made…) Leader: Let us rejoice… Others: (Let us rejoice…) Leader: And be glad in it. Others: (And be glad in it.)
All: This is the day that our God has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Leader: This is the day… Others: (This is the day…) All: That our God… has… made!

TAKE A MOMENT This is a time to become fully present with one another and with God. Invite everyone to take a deep breath in and exhale fully. Repeat this deep breathing for about 20 seconds, everyone at their own pace.
