This week’s Picture News (20.1.23)
This week in Picture News we thought about the question: Do we throw things away too easily?
Our discussions touched on reusing, repairing, and upcycling items, instead of throwing them away. We found out about the upcycling shop, the Repair Café in Wales. This café believes that because of the cost of living crisis, people are making the most of what they already have.
During our Class-Based Worship we also talked about how Jesus shows His followers that, as well as repairing and restoring items, we can repair and restore relationships. We were very glad to think about Jesus’ death and resurrection: forgiveness and fresh starts are on offer for us all.
You might like to continue the discussion at home and use the prayer we prayed:
Think about some of the items you have at home or in school that may be in need of repair or restoration.
Are some easier to fix than others? Why?
Do you think when friendships become damaged, some are more tricky to fix than others?
Discuss what you might need to fix a damaged friendship e.g., forgiveness, honesty, trust, hope.
Thank you for giving us hope and the possibility of a new start.
Sorry for any damage we may have caused in the past.
Help us to see the possibilities in everything around us so that we can repair and restore.
