Thoughts Reflections and Ideas

Creative Writing using Psalms and Images of God

resources In this section the children are encouraged to consider what God is like, not just in terms of what he may look like, but what does he do ? How does he work ? Where do we see him ?

We also look at a series of different Psalms and consider the way in which different writers expressed their thoughts, feelings and emotions before God. Even put into words and songs some of their inner most feelings. Psalm 145 has a wealth of descriptions and attributes.

Footsteps of Jesus

cards The footsteps of Jesus picture pack is based on a series of colour pictures and reflections centered on the Stations of the Cross. We have chosen six pictures to act as a reflective time for all-age worship, collective worship or part of a RE day within school. Each picture has with it a series of questions and a simple activity for you to share. Groups are encouraged to travel around looking at the pictures and spend some time, thinking, reflecting, and if appropriate praying.

Each picture also comes with a suggested activity for reflection.

Using a series of pictures and activities groups are encouraged to share together, and reflect upon the different people involved.
