Here’s the content I used for this week:
And here’s a link to God’s Story; The Book of Psalms:
This week I had my son, Nate, a high school Junior and quite an accomplished drummer, talk about his drumming and demonstrate the power of rhythms. He used a paint bucker as the kids sat around him on the gym floor. It was a “drum circle” type of exercise, and The kids did even better than I expected during his time with them. He did a great job sharing a bit of his knowledge of drumming and its history.
We went from the gym to a restroom break, then back to the cafe for snacks and a lesson recap.
