Gathering prayer:

Dear Lord Jesus, we don't have to see you to know you are with us. You bring us all together as a community, in your love. Thank you Jesus.  Amen 

Welcome:

Today Jesus teaches us how to deal with someone who upsets us.

Gospel:

Activity for now:

Use a coloured piece of paper. Think of times that you have been wronged or upset by other people, and tear a piece off for each one. (You may want to do this with someone else and different coloured paper) Now use the ripped up pieces of paper to create a mosaic of something beautiful e.g. a flower, a heart or a butterfly. Beautiful things can come from dealing with things that have upset us.

Creative Activity:

Draw a person shape on a piece of paper or card and cut it out. Now write on the shape an action or quality that helps a community ti get along well or builds them up. You may want to create more than one person shape...you can then join these together into a community.

Activity for this week:

Think of a friend who you have upset or who has upset you. Make an effort this week to get in touch with them and put things right.

 

Prayer for today:

Dear God, we go back to our communities; the places where we live, where we learn to listen to you and to each other and act on what we hear. Be with us. Lord.   Amen
