Waiting

As we enter the time of Advent our new RE topic is Waiting. Advent is a time of waiting in joyful hope for Jesus, when we appreciate the love in our lives and prepare to celebrate love becoming a reality in the person of Jesus. Christians at Christmas celebrate the gift of Jesus, given by God as a sign and expression of God’s love. Giving and receiving reflects the truth that all life is given by God and life is given meaning through the gift of Jesus.

  • How do you feel when you are waiting for something you like?
  • What do you find difficult about waiting?
  • What can you do to make waiting easier?
  • How can we best prepare for Christmas?

Belonging

Our next topic is Baptism/Confirmation and our focus will be on belonging. 

Our lives are marked by many different experiences of being welcomed into new situations and groups. We recognise the importance of welcome, of feeling comfortable with new situations and belonging to new groups. We belong to families, to work places and to social groupings.

  • What experiences of belonging can you recall in the family, at work or in leisure time?
  • Are these good experiences? Are there any difficulties?
  • What difference does ‘belonging’ make in your life?
