New topic: Our world
Suggested song to start your session: 'He's got the whole world in his hands'
Suggested prayer to start your session:
Each leaf, each petal,
each grain, each person,
sings your praises,
Each creature on the earth,
all the mountains and great seas
show your glory,
Spirit of love.
And yet the hand of greed
has patented and plundered
has taken and not shared
has lived as owner of the earth,
the ice is cracked
the rivers dry,
the valleys flooded
and the snowcaps melt.
God our Father, show us
how to step gently,
how to live simply,
how to walk lightly
with respect and love
for all that you have made.
Talk about the pictures below with your adult. What can we do to take care of God's world?
What can we do to help other people in our world?
Think about what we have done at school to help our world, can you remember the Harvest festival? Can you remember about what Fairtrade means?
Break the word into two parts to help you: 'Fair' 'trade'
What do those words mean?
What do you think Carmen and her family need? Do you think she would get to go to school every day?
