It is our responsibility to be a witness to our faith.

This week’s Word of the week is witness. The first apostles all witnessed Jesus risen from the dead but then they had the almost impossible task of telling the whole world what they had seen. They were witnesses and thier job was not just to see God but to tell others about him.

How often do we see something amazing and not share it with others? How often do we see God at work in our world and not even notice.

think this week about how your life shows others what you believe – how are you a witness?

 

In your forms  – think about the most amazing things you’ve witnessed and tell someone about it!

How easy is it to miss something going on right in front of us?

In your forms  – discuss the things in our world that happen every day that we do not notice. What situations in our world need more attention?

PSHCE

We’re moving on to a new topic in our PSHCE this half term – This is a chance to explore what it means to do the right thing and the consequences when we don’t. It’s an opportunity to explore the legal system and how we make decisions as part of a democracy. An opportunity to explore what it means to be fair and how to affect situations where this is not the case.

Use the Key Process of Expert Groups to explore this news story from this week –

If you get chance – print off the article and give each group a chance to look at a different part.

UPDATE: Teresa May has said that the Conservative government WILL uphold the UK’s commitment to 0.7 percent of GDP to Foreign Aid – but is she right?

Lord, help us to listen to our conscience and by guided by our faith. Amen.

Scripture

NEXT STEPSWe begin with the Sign of the Cross

As you know, we are going to use the Scripture from this Sunday’s Gospel to reflect on every Friday. If you are in KS 3/4 You can use your planners to to help you understand the scripture.

This year we want to bring the Word of God to life on a Friday morning to help us reflect and understand scripture a little bit better, so with the help of our school community a different person each week will read our Gospel and share what it means to them. Use your planners to help you discuss and explore the story further.

John 20: 19-20

It was late that Sunday evening, and the disciples were gathered together behind locked doors, because they were afraid of the Jewish authorities. Then Jesus came and stood among them. “Peace be with you,” he said. After saying this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples were filled with joy at seeing the Lord.

Are you afraid of anyone finding out about your faith or do you stand up and share what you believe in? Do you put your trust in what others say or wait until you see the evidence?

Lord, help us to listen to and follow your word. Amen.
