(Friend Feb 2003)
To help the children understand the blessing of having the priesthood of God restored to the earth:
Read aloud together 1
Discuss the blessings and obligations that come from being a "chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people."
Place these wordstrips in a container:
Blessing a baby,
Blessing the sacrament,
Giving a healing blessing,
A new teacher being set apart,
A family in front of the temple,
Dedication of a building,
Have one or two children choose a wordstrip and then draw the scene on the chalkboard while the rest of the Primary guesses what blessing from the priesthood is being drawn.
Discuss how the priesthood is used in that instance. Have the children tell what they can do to honor the priesthood holder. Sing an appropriate song. Repeat until all the wordstrips have been used.
