Questions To Consider
1. What do we learn about Jesus as we see what he does and says?
(Many commentators point out the many ironies found in these accounts of the crucifixion, can you see any in this account and what does this teach us about Jesus.)
2. Who is there?
What do they say and what do they do?
What do we learn from their responses?
3. How do I respond today as I look on at this scene?
Children's - Challenge
Song to Start -
Challenge 1. - Nick and Siobhan will be recording a video of them doing the actions for this new song and will share this via WhatsApp - The challenge is for the Children and families to learn the actions this week and send a video back!
Challenge 2 -
For families with younger children:
Make a bright picture of a cross, to put up somewhere you will see it this week to remind you and your family that Jesus dying on the cross is good news.
You could use pens, paints, bright coloured paper, stickers etc.
We’d love to see photos of your cross pictures.
For families with older children:
Make a cross out of wood/sticks or cardboard. Talk together about the fact that Jesus died on the cross to take away our sins.
You could write some things you are sorry for on paper and stick them to the cross and remember that Jesus died on the cross so we could be forgiven for the things we do wrong.
Thoughts for Prayer
The list for all those that need prayer at this time is big, but we know we have a God who is so much BIGGER (as we have been studying together)- bring all to him; from prime ministers to bin-men. All are vulnerable and all are valuable.
Those who are isolated and lonely, (care homes, hospitals & prisons)
Pray for faith and not fear as children of God
Opportunities for us to share the hope and security we have in Jesus.
Pray for peace in homes, towns, cities, and nations.
Pray for developing countries around the world who lack the infrastructure to cope with this pandemic.
This week we were due a visit from Andrew Coleclough from the Slavic Gospel Association. Obviously due to the current situation that can't happen, however, Andrew has kindly pulled together a great video to keep us up to date with all that has, and is continuing, to go on in the mission.
