Elementary:

Good morning ___school name____.

Wherever you are in the building, please stand up for Jesus and join me in the sign of our faith.

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen

We begin this morning by lighting one purple candle. Have someone in the room turn the lights off in the classroom so we can focus in on our Advent wreath. (Pause)

Jesus wants us to enjoy life and have fun…let's start our Friday with a little laughter.

The Atheist and the Bear

 One beautiful morning, an atheist, who doesn't believe in God, was walking through the forest. He looked up and saw the beautiful trees, and the sun twinkling in the sky and he thought…what a wonderful world! The atheist walked a little further and suddenly a bear jumped out of the bushes and started growling, and walked slowly towards him…

Seeing the big bear he screamed and started running as fast as he could away from the bear. Knowing that the bear would soon catch up to him, the atheist ran out of breath and fell to the ground.

The bear put his huge paws down on the man, and then he screamed, "PLEASE help me God!"

Then he heard a voice say…"I am God, and even though you don't believe in me, I am here for every person on this earth." The atheist felt relieved and said to God, "I'm in a bad situation and I'm wondering if you can help me get out of it."

God thought for a moment and said..."I will give you one wish to help you and that is all."

The atheist thought about this one wish for a moment and then spoke to God..."Well I don't really want to become a religious person, so I wish you could make the bear religious."

God spoke..."Ok, I will make the bear religious". So the bear put his paws together and started to pray. Then the bear said,

"Thank you, God for this meal that I'm about to eat!" (Pause…for laughter…lol  )

Let us pray: Thank you God for laughter.

Help us to work hard today, Lord, and keep our school a safe place for all of us. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
