This download contains six short, interactive explorations for people of all ages exploring the blessing in Numbers 6:24-26:
“The Lord bless you
and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face towards you
and give you peace.”
Each ‘session’ explore one phrase (as above), providing a little info about the phrase (often including a word in Hebrew), another Bible passage to read in connection with the phrase, some open-ended questions to use to chat about the Bible passage (not prep or previous experience needed!) and a challenge.
This material is purposefully open-ended with a learn together approach which works for people of all ages and stages in their faith journey. You could use it on an online small group, giving everyone opportunity to contribute and add their own thoughts. Young children may like to do something hands on, and there are lots of activities exploring the blessing here which you could use.
This material was first published as part of the Blessing Faith at Home Mini-mag and Blessing Box, and the activities in these resources could be used alongside Extra Blessing to give a more hands on exploration, for example using Lego, bubbles and friendship bracelets.
When you have purchased, you will be able to download and print two versions of these material, one in colour and the other mostly in purple.
