2/22 - Commercial

. Posted in 2013 Lenten Readings

Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the LORD your God is giving you. [Deuteronomy 5:16}

 

As a Student Council Advisor at Southbridge and Wachusett Regional High Schools, I often led leadership workshops with our student officers. Part of these day-long activities included a session where groups of 5 or 6 kids had to develop a commercial selling Student Council or their own high school. Each student had to participate.  I was always amazed at the enthusiasm and creativity.  If I were to direct one for Immanuel, it would be a musical skit.   I would start with all of our youth, from the youngest to the oldest, standing on the steps of the church on a beautiful sunny day.  They would be singing "Let There Be Peace on Earth" and let it begin with Immanuel.  What better way to express a welcoming invitation to our church.

 

Let Us Pray:  Father in Heaven let us be extra thankful for the blessings of our youth, for they are what keeps us young.
