Advent Begins!

Advent is a season observed in many Western Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas.

Think about the journey that the kings and the shepherds made to be at the birth of Jesus. What must their excitement and anticipation felt like? Probably just as excited as we feel as Christmas is coming!

Courage to make the first move

Listen to the song below sung by a member of the Iona community. These people spend their time helping people in big cities who are alone and have few friends.

As you listen to the words of the song, think of someone you know at school, who is lonely or needs some help. Have the courage to make a big effort to be friendly.

What a Hero - St Paul

I read out part of a letter in church yesterday. It was a letter from St Paul to his church in a place called Corinth.

Paul is a shining example of what it is to be brave and stand up for what you believe in.

This video will give you an example of what he went through to share his beliefs and faith with others.

How can we face bullies with courage?

Goodness is stronger than evil,
Love is stronger than hate.
Light is stronger than darkness,
Life is stronger that death,
Victory is ours through Jesus who loves us.

(Archbishop Desmond Tutu)

Facing our fears with courage

God cares for you, so turn all your worries over to Him.  (1Peter 5)

Many people feel that they can tell God in a prayer about the things that worry or frighten them.  God will often use other people to help us.

Have you ever had a worry that you no longer have? How did you learn to deal with it?
