The best way to start and end the day is to see the faces of Courageous cohort and engage in all kinds of conversations.
And when I say all kinds, I mean the kinds where we laugh and problem solve together and pray for and challenge each other.
For example, the students and I had planned to record a silent prayer for the graduating 8th graders. Each student was assigned to a word, so this meant that the order of the students was important. Once we all had written our words, we had some technical difficulties, and we were all out of order! However, the students were quick to offer different solutions and worked together to fix the problem.
Figuring out a way reorder ourselves on the screen
Problem solved! We successfully recorded a prayer for the 8th graders.
Another time, we laughed reminiscing the times they had to prepare for Pentecost as 1st graders and sharing which birthday treats we chose to bring.
And then there are times when we share personal stories about our families and pray for one another. We pray for healing. We pray for strength. We pray for wisdom.
There really is no better way to start and end the day than to hear the words of Courageous that bring joy, laughter, challenge, and reflection. Thank you, Courageous!
