Come and See (RE)

NEW TOPIC Being Sorry



LEARNING FOCUS 3: God helps us to be kind.

Think about the stories of Levi and Zacchaeus form last week.  Do you think they found it easy to change their ways and to be sorry?  It is not easy to do this by ourselves, but God is there to help us, just as Jesus helped Levi and Zacchaeus.

Read God’s Story 2 pages 48-49, God’s promise based on Isaiah 58: 9-11.  Isaiah wrote about God’s forgiveness, even before Jesus came to earth.  He made it clear what good choices we need to make to be kind and to make ourselves and others happy.


Can you choose one of these ideas from the scripture and make a promise card?  Explain in words or pictures how you will act on this promise.


Can you draw a candle and write words that will show how you can be kind and ‘be a light that shines in the dark’?


LEARNING FOCUS 4: Recognise that we need forgiveness.


Think about the previous session and how when we need help, God answers, ‘Here I am’.  Using the picture and text on Church’s Story 2 page 44, talk about the words ‘sorry’ and ‘forgive’ and what they mean.  These are more than just words – we need to mean what we say.  It may take a little time before we understand that what we have done has made others and ourselves unhappy.  Refer to Church’s Story 2 pages 46-47.  It is good at the end of the day to stop and think about what has happened during the day. 


Can you think about the good things that have happened and say, ‘Thank you!’ to God for them?  Then think about the wrong choices you have made and say ‘Sorry!’
