Today, our Missio Advent Calendar asked us to think about how we can be
We first considered what ‘peace’ meant. Here are some of the children’s responses:
‘safe’ ‘quiet’ ‘calm’ ‘reflection’ ‘focus’ ‘still’ ‘no fighting’ ‘friendship and love’ ‘undisturbed’
We then considered why peace is important:
- Gives us thinking time
- Allows us to spend time in prayer with God
- Good for our mental and spiritual wellbeing
- Improves our relationships with each other and God.
- Builds tolerance and unity
We took it in turns to read out our peace-making promises before adding each of them to create a class paper chain.
