Use the five senses to “wow” kids in your children’s ministry.
Stop for a moment and close your eyes. Think about a time-in ministry, in school, in your life—when someone or something truly took your breath away. For me, it was a college psychology class when, on the very first day, the professor took roll. No big deal, except that he already knew everyone’s names and birthdates—and for almost all 50 of us, it was the first time we’d ever laid eyes on him. Maybe it was a “slight of hand” trick—but whatever it was, I still remember it and the feeling of awe it gave me. It was a “wow” experience.
