As this week is anti bullying week we started our day by holding an in class liturgy. I prepared a reading and left everything else up to the class!
Gather: We stood in a circle and held hands whilst listening to quiet music.
Listen: We listened as some of the children took turns to read aloud the reading. The reading was from the Gospel according to John 13:34-35
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another,”
Respond: We then cut out a hand shape and wrote a prayer on it to help remind us to love one another and treat others as we wish to be treated. Following this we said our prayer aloud whilst dropping a prayer pebble into some water.
Go Forth: Going forward we promised to try our best to love everyone and be a good friend.
What a lovely start to the week!
