Faith Five

1.   Share – Your highs and lows for the day
2.   Read – Scripture from Sunday
3.   Talk – about how the bible relates to your highs and lows
4.   Pray – for your highs and lows, family and the world
5.   Bless – one another

I pray that you are continuing to use and find this helpful.  This is a great tool to use as a family to stay united in the presence of God.   As you gather together, share your highs and lows from the day.  This allows you all to share where you are at.  This is key within Lutheran theology, for this is how God approaches us, where we are. Then gather around God's Word from Sunday's lessons or select a book to journey through.  Take a moment for reflection then talk about how your highs and lows relate to the Bible readings.  This can be a challenge sometimes.  Once you have taken some time with this, pray about your highs and lows, giving thanks and praying for help and guidance but also for your family and the world around us.  Finally end your time by blessing one another as you go forth back into the world but empowered by the Holy Spirit, surrounded by the love of your family and God to face the world.
