Good morning everyone,
Have a to this song and remind yourselves of the value for this half-term.
Hopefully you remembered that it is ‘Peace‘ meaning a time of harmony, calmness and not being disturbed by anything. It also refers to times without fighting or wars. Shalom is the Hebrew word meaning peace and is used in the Bible . Today we are thinking about making peace.
Who might these be? I imagine that they could be brother and sister and sometimes it is hard to always get on with other family members. What could have been the cause of their argument? What might they have been feeling inside? How could the argument have been resolved?
There is a story from the Old Testament and Abraham and Lot.
Why did the quarrel break out?
How did Abraham suggest they could settle the quarrel? What qualities did Abraham show through his behaviour to Lot? This story comes from a time long before Jesus was born. However, when Jesus was alive and teaching his disciples, he also taught them to be generous and live peacefully together.
Can you think of times when you have fallen out with someone from your family or friends? How did you sort it out?
Let’s hope we have a great time in school this week and any conflicts are resolved peacefully.
We thank you for giving us your peace.
Help us to spread peace at home and at school by loving and caring for one
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
Song- Peace like a River
