The-Helix-NebulaMade in God’s image. We are told in scripture that we are made in God’s image. But what does that mean? We obviously all look different so that must mean we resemble God in other ways. This week were going to think about how we see each other and how we see ourselves, so that hopefully we can see within each of us we can see God as well.

This week we will be in AOW’s on Monday Tuesday or Wednesday – so feel free to check out the resources for the day you miss too!

Monday

BigQuestion750

We Start with the Sign of the Cross.

Monday’s always start with The BIG question and this question is a very big one indeed. In fact it’s one that people have been thinking about for years.

Have a talk in pairs and then as a class about today’s BIG question:

What do you think God looks like?

Leave you answers in the comments box below!

Morning Prayer: Lord, help us to get to know you be seeing you in other people. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.

Prayer at the end of the day

Have you seen God at work today?

Father, give us faith
And help us to appreciate the things we cannot see.
Inspire in us not just a faith in you, but a faith in our family, our friends and ourselves.
Thank you for the strength that comes from your love;
Help me, when I am at my weakest, to find my faith again. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.

Tuesday

We Start with the Sign of the Cross.

When we realise that we are made in the image of God we realise too that we are all part of God’s family and creation. We look different on the outside but on the inside we share many of the gifts and qualities that God has given us.

Your task for your AOW today is this:

Starting with one member of the form, say out loud something you love or a hobby you have or a personality trait with the person next to you until you find something that you share.

For example, Person A might say “I like football” But person B may not so person A would have to try again, they then may say “I’m a good listener” and this time person B may agree! When person B has found something in common with person A they then have to turn to person C and find something they have in common and so on and so on!

(You are not allowed to use negative personality traits like “I’m a bad dancer!” for example!)

The aim of the game is to get all the way through your form in a chain as quick as possible! If you want to time your form put your results in the comments box below!

In John’s Gospel we hear the “The glory of God is a human being fully alive.” When we see and share the things we have in common it helps us to live our life to the full with the people around us and realise that we are all made in God’s image.

Morning Prayer: Lord, help us find the things we have in common. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.

Thank you for the strength that comes from your love;
Help me, when I am at my weakest, to find my faith again. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.

Wednesday

We Start with the Sign of the Cross.

Do we treat people equally? If we are all made in the image of God then we should treat each other as equals. See God in others however is not always easy.

Watch this video and think about what it’s trying to say. Maybe think about the way in which you treat the different people in school.

Thank you for the strength that comes from your love;
Help me, when I am at my weakest, to find my faith again. Amen.

Friday

We Start with the Sign of the Cross.

On a Friday we always reflect on Scripture and this week we are going to look at a piece of Scripture that we heard during our AOW’s this week with Beth our former student.

This is from Matthew’s Gospel, Chapter 25: 34-39

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.  For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,  I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

What does this mean for us today?

Morning Prayer: Lord, help us to see you in all people, especially those in need. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.

Prayer at the end of the day

Thank you for the strength that comes from your love;
Help me, when I am at my weakest, to find my faith again. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.
