Gathering prayer:

Lord Jesus, may we keep other people in our hearts as we worship with joy; may we remember those who are fearful or crying today; let us be filled with your compassion. Amen 

Welcome:

Today Jesus tells a story about a shepherd sorting out sheep and goats to show how God separates the kind from the unkind.

Jesus hands were kind hands

Activity for now:

Using a paper plate, cut some eye holes in the middle. Make sure a grown up helps you here! Now glue on cotton wool, making sure to leave enough space to draw on some ears and a mouth. Think about the characteristics the sheep in the story had, write these on the back of the mask e.g. kind, caring, compassionate. Each time you hold the mask to your face you will be reminded of those things.

Extra Activity:

Some questions for reflection...

During the worst of this year's pandemic, who did you want to show appreciation to?

How might you become more compassionate?

Perhaps you might want to write a list of things that you and your family could do over the next few weeks to show compassion.

Activity for this week:

Practise being kind this week. You could buy someone a hot drink, help someone in a practical way or simply smile at someone as you pass them on the street.

 

Prayer for today:

Lord Jesus, you reached down low to help us up. Make us the kind of people who hold out hands to others.  Amen
 

Come you are blessed by my Father.
