R,E. - Advent: the Church prepares for the visit of God in the person of Jesus.
Advent is a time, a season, during which the Church reflects on and prepares for the coming of God into our world at Christmas. Visitors bring joys and demands. The coming of God also brings joys and demands. During Advent, the Church prepares for the celebration of the coming of God into the world at Christmas by listening to or reading passages from the Bible which tell of these joys and demands.
In his letter to the Christian family in Rome, Paul speaks about living a life that would be pleasing to God if he were to visit them personally. He tells them that all the commandments can be summed up in one commandment:
‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’
You must do this, because the time has come, the moment is here for you to wake up from your sleep. The Lord is coming, he is very near. It is as if night is almost over, day is almost here.
Let’s stop doing then, all the things that we prefer to do under the cover of darkness.
Let’s live properly as children of the light should live. No more greed, no more stealing, no more telling lies, no more fighting, no more jealousy. Let’s live as friends of Jesus should.’
Based on Romans 13: 9b-13a
SOME KEY QUESTIONS
- What does Paul say about being ready?
- What does Paul mean when he speaks about darkness?
- How does Paul say the Christian family should live?
- How can we ‘live properly’?
- What does living like this demand? Make a list of these demands.
- What would you add to them?
- How can we prepare during Advent? What advice does Paul have?
- Think about the way we can show our love for our neighbour during Advent in preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus. Write these as Advent promises on a candle ( you can draw your own if you can't print the candle).
Art - We are going to design and make our own kindness baubles. I would like you to write a message for someone in our class. Write what you like about them. You can then decorate your bauble and we will hang these up when we get bacl to school. If you can't print the template then you can draw your own bauble. That would also be lovely.
Have a good day and be the best that you can be.
