Religious Education Advent 2
Topic 2 - 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.
Christians believe that everyone is invited to share in the life and work of God through Baptism. The Bible recounts God’s invitations to people to share in his life and work: among them are Moses, Samuel, the prophets, Mary and the apostles.
In this topic we will be learning that the sacraments are actions and signs, which deepen communion with God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. At Baptism, the church invites and welcomes the person into the church family. The Sacrament of Baptism is the basis of all Christian life.
If your child has been baptised we would love to see any pictures or items you have to share with us. Spend time with your child talking to them about their baptism and how they were welcomed into God's family.
