To begin the session:
Distribute copies of the “Bless You!” exercise from the activity page, which you can download here. Have students work individually to complete the activity as indicated in no more than one minute.
After the activity say, “To be blessed is to recognize and enjoy some kind of prosperity. In describing the visit of Mary to Elizabeth, Luke repeatedly wrote of blessing and being blessed. Let’s see what this has to do with us.”
To encourage personal application:
As learners depart, distribute copies of the “Praying from the Psalms” exercise from the activity page as a take-home. To encourage completion, promise to discuss the results at the beginning of the next class.
