In this week’s Monday assembly, Mrs Beer talked to us about the challenges that face our brothers and sisters across the world.
We heard how many of them do not have clean water to drink, soap to wash their hands with, food to eat or a place to live.
We are lucky enough to have all of those things, but we take them for granted. When we turn on the tap, we know there will be clean water to drink. When we turn on the light, we know a bulb will come on. When we get home after school, we know that there will be food for dinner – and we all have homes to go to.
We take other things for granted too – the sun in the sky, the leaves on the trees, the birds singing, flowers blooming and bees buzzing.
This is the scripture we heard:
A reading from the book of Genesis
God said, “Let there be light,” and there was the sun.
God said, “Let there be water,” and there were the seas.
God said, “Let the seas be filled with creatures and the skies be filled with flying creatures.” And they were.
God said, “Let the earth be filled with animals,” and so it was.
God saw that it was good.
So then God created men and women who would love and care for the world.
God looked at all creation and it was very good.
The word of the Lord
Thanks be to God
