Children, earlier this week we explained to you that Bishop Patrick wants to listen to you. He wants to hear all about what you think and what you feel about being part of God’s family. As His children you are loved and cherished by Him, so it is very important that we listen to you.
1)What is your dream for the Church and your school? How can we make this happen?
2)Who are the people who feel left out and excluded in the Church? How can we reach out, listen to, and love them? Think of two ideas, one for now and one for the future, to help include them.
3)What does the Holy Spirit inspire us to do in our Church and school? What do you think the Holy Spirit is calling us to do next?
You may choose to share your answers to these questions here or in a poem, picture or a story. We would love to share some of your dreams on display boards in school or on social media, using the hashtags #listeningchurch or #synod.
Remember what Bishop Patrick says, ‘Thank you for helping me with this important task. Never forget that God the Father always wants to hear about his children’s plans and dreams. Don’t be afraid to tell Him all about them. He loves you and will always help you to live your dreams.‘
