Weekly Assembly

Term 2 Week 3

18 - 22 January 2021

Welcome

The SLT or any educator who is conducting the assembly will address the students positively saying good morning to all. One can start this assembly with the sign of the cross: "In the name of the Father, and of the son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen"


Introduction

This is a very special week for those who are Christians. This week is called the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. In it, we pray for us Christians to unite and see what we can agree on, not on what we disagree on. As we are going to see in this video although from the outside, we look different inside we are all Children of God. God loves us all and sent his son Jesus to save us all.

Object Lesson on Unity - Same at the Core

Ask kids to stop for a few seconds to think about what they saw.

Reflective Thought

For both Christian believers and Non-Christian believers taking time to join in praying for Unity among Christians is a way of showing respect.


Prayer

Jesus told us: Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit. (John 15:5-9)

Dear God, of unity and peace we ask you to unite Christians with you and together so that they can carry your love wherever they will go and in whatever they will say and do. Amen.
