Monday Worship – Finding Peace

Good morning everyone,

I hope you have enjoyed the good weather this weekend and are ready for another week of learning and fun. Our Christian value for this half-term is Peace. Have a look at the following objects and think about what they all have in common.

Here is the sound of one of them  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNpXCzaWW1s

Can you imagine what it would be like if all of these objects were played or turned on at the same time? What would it feel like?

Sometimes, we like to make a lot of noise. Can you think of those situations e.g. a football match. Can you think of other times?

When do you like to be quiet?

Sometimes we call quiet and calm ‘being peaceful’. Can you think of a place you like to go to be peaceful?

We can’t always get to our peaceful place so what kind of things help you to feel peaceful? e.g listening to music?

Keeping peace is not just about being quiet – what else do we mean when we talk about being peaceful? (feeling calm, not being anxious, having confidence, not fighting and disagreeing). The video clip is taken from the Psalm of David 23.

When he feels peaceful, the psalmist is able to be strengthened and guided by God. It is important for us all to have times of quiet when we can think and reflect on things.

If you need some peaceful times this week, have a listen to the music below.

Dear God,
We thank you for giving us your peace.
Help us to spread peace at home and at school by loving and caring for one
another.
Help us to spread peace by listening to one another, even when we don’t agree.
Help us to spread peace by thinking and praying for children who have no food
or who are frightened and live in fear.
Let us pray every day for peace for our families, for our friends and for
ourselves.

Amen
