Sometimes, we accidentally break things that belong to ourselves or others. Sometimes, we use something so much it wears out. Some things that are broken cannot be mended, but it’s often possible to mend things that we’ve broken. When you fall out with one of your friends, you can’t mend that friendship with a needle and thread, or some Sellotape, or glue or a puncture kit or a sticking plaster. This half-term, we’ll learn all about forgiveness and hear stories from the Bible to help us.
The Church Council chose peace as a Christian value because ‘because Jesus forgives his disciples.’ (Y4 Church Council member).
Discuss as a family: Why is it important to forgive?
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as Christ God forgave you.
(1 John 13:18)
