‘Is it better NOT to be a witness?’

‘It is better NOT to be a witness.’

This is the statement which we explored in Year 6, as an introduction to our RE Pentecost Topic – WITNESSES.  We began by improvising some scenarios where we may see something unusual or wrong and be faced with a dilemma – should we tell someone or not?

Following this, we held a debate to consider the pros and cons of being a ‘witness.’   After lengthy discussion, we decided that it was important to be a ‘witness’ but recognised that standing up for a belief can require a great deal of courage!

The rest of our topic will focus on the courage needed by God’s ‘witnesses’,  after the death and resurrection of Jesus.
