Great Ideas: Messages to God


Messages to God

Throughout the school year, my students may write notes for the God Box, a fancy cardboard storage box that is nailed shut and is on our classroom prayer table. Any student can write a personal prayer or message to God on a postal note, which is then placed in a small slit on the top of the box. When the box is full, the messages, intended only for God, are burned.
