Expectations Liturgy

Year 6 took a moment today, amidst all the excitement, to stop and reflect on the work we have done during our Advent R.E. topic, Expectations. We thought about how Advent means “coming” or “arrival”. It reminds us of the anticipation and expectation over hundreds of years by the people of Israel for their Messiah and promised King.

The reading was from Mark’s Gospel. Mark begins his Gospel by referring to the Old Testament prophecy of Isaiah, which he applies to John the Baptist, the cousin of Jesus. In Mark’s Gospel it is John the Baptist who announces the expectation of the coming of Jesus, referring to the prophecy of Isaiah made hundreds of years earlier.

To reflect and respond on the reading, children wrote a prayer to Jesus on a heart shape. The prayer was to let Jesus know how we will prepare our hearts for his coming.

Article 29

Your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities. It should also help you learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.

Article 30

You have the right to practice your own culture, language and religion – or any you choose. Minority and indigenous groups need special protection of this right.
