Supplies to Gather:

The video said, “There is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.”  How does this make you feel?

Do you hope there is Someone or Something else out there?

Have you ever felt like there is Someone or Something watching over us?

Teaching Tips:

Be sure to review last weeks thoughts about the Mind, Body and Soul.  You may want to ask how people have exercised their Mind, Body and Souls in the past week
