Hi Y6, Thanks for all your hard work last week. Here is this week’s tasks.
As you have found out, at Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came to the disciples and gave them seven gifts. These gifts enabled the Disciples to go out and share Jesus’ message “love one another as I have loved you’. These disciples were witnesses to Jesus’ message. Some people today could be called modern witnesses to the message. These are people who do good things and look out for other people – there are lots of modern witnesses around at the moment!
Your task is to choose someone who you feel could be called a modern witness because they live out Jesus’ message of ‘love one another as I have loved you.’ This could be anyone from a famous person e.g. Bill Gates, or a friend or relative of yours. When you have chosen them, please write a letter to us to justify why you think this person could be called a modern witness. Please upload your letters to Google Classroom
This week’s prayers: www.tentenresources.co.uk/daily-prayers-for-home
