Week 3 (Caring for those in need; a Christian responsibility)
'And who is my neighbour?'
Today we are going to learn about our Christian responsibility to care for people and learn about the meaning of mercy and compassion.
We should look back to last week's lesson when Jesus talked of his mission to heal and care for the sick and the needy. For it was written in the scripture that it was to be his ministry.
This week we learn that Jesus wants it to be our responsibility and job to do the same.
Read through the Powerpoint presentation below and pause to reflect on the questions that follow the scripture. Jot down your own answers.
Then have a go at the activity that involves drawing your own scene of mercy and explaining its meaning.
