This week we have been exploring the Ascension and the promises Jesus made to his disciples that he would send the Holy Spirit to help them be witnesses in the world. The children noticed that in the artwork we explored, Peter was dressed the same as Jesus. Taylor thought that this was a sign that Peter was going to be like Jesus and also sacrifice himself for God like Jesus sacrificed himself for us.
Doruk thought that it’s hard to be a witness because people might not listen or be mean to you so disciples really need the Holy Spirit to help them to be brave. Fausta said that maybe God would help us to know what to say if we weren’t sure. Amya agreed with Julia that we could be witnesses for Jesus by living the way that God wants to and walking in Jesus’ footsteps by being kind and helpful and even loving people who are mean to us.
