Gathering prayer:

Dear God, sometimes it's so hard to know the right thing to do. Please teach us today to listen to you, and to stick with what you tell us.  Amen 

Welcome:

Today Paul helps us to think carefully about making the right choices and sticking with them when it's hard.

Gospel:

This Sunday's reading is Philippians 1: 22-25 either read it yourself from your own Bible or use www.biblegateway.com

Song for today:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXF-HAURxmg I reach up high, I touch the ground

Activity for now:

On a long sheet of paper, draw a wiggly 'path'. Dip your feet in paint and walk along the path to make footprints. Do you always follow the path? Sometimes do you take big footsteps and other times small ones? Why is that?

Extra Activity:

With a grown up to aid you, plan a walk together. You could use street maps for this. Decide on the route, the date and any activities you might fit in along the way. Once on the walk, use the time together to bond, as well as talking about the paths they have chosen for their lives. Discuss how you can help each other on these paths.

Activity for this week:

In all the decisions you make this week, however big or small, stop and pray for God's guidance and think about how each decision reflects your faith.

 

Prayer for today:

Lord Jesus, this week, whenever we have a choice to make, help us to say a little prayer to you. 'Help us to choose wisely, Lord'.

Amen
