Getting Children to Hush

This?  Amazed me.


My six-year-old son is going to be a wise man in our church’s Christmas pageant this year.  (He’s very, very excited about this, by the way.)  Anyhow, we’ve had rehearsals the past couple weeks to get ready for the show.  There are a LOT of children involved in this and, not surprisingly, the noise level can be deafening.


When it’s time to get started, our children’s programming director gets all the children (100+ of them!) to hush without ever raising her voice.


How does she do it?


She walks to the front of the room and says, in a clear voice,


“In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit…”


And they hush.


All of them.  (Well, maybe not that one punk sheep we’ve got– every church has one. ;))


It is AMAZING.  And I think I’m going to have to try it.
