Good morning girls and boys,
Welcome. It's awesome to talk to you this morning. How are you? (children respond)
I have a question for you. Does your teacher ever teach something that is hard to understand? Are you sometimes puzzled or bewildered by something your teacher said?
Have you ever wondered about hard things like what electricity is and how it works? Or gravity? Or the universe? Or algebra? (children answer)
There was that day when Jesus said something that was hard to understand. He said “Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them.”
