Making a promise is an important thing. It’s more than just a throw away comment – it’s a commitment to do something for someone else.

Throughout history, God has made promises to his people and in our first week back after half term the Year 8’s will have their Exodus retreat day where they will learn about God’s promise of salvation.

Think this week about how easy you find it to keep a promise and what it means to hear God’s promises to us.

Monday/Tuesday

We begin with the Sign of the Cross

It’s time for our “Word of the Week” watch the video above and check out for the notices at the bottom of the screen – don’t forget to leave your comments below!

Think about this weeks theme. In your forms get into pairs and think about a promise you can make to each other. It might be something simple like I promise to give you a compliment every day this week, or you could try something harder like I promise to help you with your homework this week.

See how easy or difficult it’ll be to fulfill these promises and if you feel brave share them with the class.

Lord, help us to remember your promise to love us. Amen.

Tuesday/Wednesday

Have a watch of this:

Spend a few moments about the people who are there for you. Who have you made a promise to and who would you sacrifice everything for? Pray for them this morning.

Lord, help us keep our promises. Amen.

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.

Luke 18: 7-8
Now, will God not judge in favour of his own people who cry to him day and night for help? Will he be slow to help them? I tell you, he will judge in their favour and do it quickly. But will the Son of Man find faith on earth when he comes?”
God promised to be with us always but do you turn to Him when you are in need? Do you always keep the promises that you make?

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