Pray with a Full Deck

The story can be traced back to at least 1788, and with each war or incursion there’s another iteration. Whatever the origination, it’s a lovely way to pray. Get out a deck of cards and “pray along” with the unknown soldier, using this most recent version of the story as a guide.

Prayer Labyrinth

Head over to The Labyrinth Society and walk their Virtual Labyrinth or download a finger labyrinth. Guideposts Online Magazine offers four ways to pray in a labyrinth.

Activities

Neighborhood Messages

Get out your chalk and write a message of encouragement and togetherness on your sidewalk or driveway so people can see it as they walk or drive by. Click here for Biblical suggestions. If you can, it would be fun (and appreciated) if you wrote “thank you” to your package/postal delivery and waste management people, too. Don’t have chalk? Make a poster and hang it in a window that faces the street.

Bake with a Purpose

Do some international baking with these recipes from Heritage Camps. For Easter, make these meaningful Resurrection Cookies and live into the awe of the first Easter.

Make a Collage

Have fun with this collage project from Heritage Camps.

Go on Virtual Tours

Virtually explore museums, zoos, and theme parks in this collection from Good Housekeeping.

Music from Aurora

Binge God

If you feel like binge-watching something, why not make it upliftling? “The Story of God with Morgan Freeman” is one such show. A wide range of topics are presented cross-culturally, with no judgement, just an earnest desire to understand. There are many platforms on which to watch, including Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. View the original trailer here.
