Preschool Precepts Part 1 - "Say Thank You"

Here is the first lesson in the 8-week series "Preschool Precepts". The idea behind this series is that there is a spiritual basis or foundation for some of the rules we were given as children. Drawing from Mark 10:15, we will be examining how we need to return to the mindset of children in our faith while displaying the surprising simplicity of following Jesus. Each week we will discuss a rule. The first week is based on the rule of saying thank you which displays the theme of thankfulness.
