The children from year 2 shared with us their understanding of rules – why we have them, how they make us safe and how they can make life more enjoyable.
God knows that we all sometimes make wrong choices and occasionally break the rules but by saying sorry, God will always forgive us.
A reading from St Paul’s Letter to the Colossians
You are created by God, to be like God.
You are God’s people, his saints. God loves you.
You should be kind and gentle, and patient and forgiving, and loving like God.
You are all different.
You come from different places, speak in different ways, have different customs.
But the important thing is that you are God’s children.
So love one another, help one another, be at peace with one another, and let the love of Jesus fill your hearts and minds.
