Collective Worship week of 29th June
This is week 4 of our theme of Respect. This week we are thinking about valuing special places.
Make the churches in our town places which show your glory, make them houses of prayer and places of respect for everyone to feel welcome inside.
Help us to show a proper respect for Holy Trinity, our church, and all the places of worship in Exmouth.
Monday 29th June
Brook has shared a video worship for us today, you can watch it here.
Today we’re going to hear about a time when Jesus became very angry. Have a look at the picture and think about how the artist has managed to express so much anger in the image.
We don’t often hear about Jesus being angry but when he visited the temple, he was furious that God’s house, the place where people worshiped, had been turned into a market.
Do you think Jesus was right to feel angry? Was he right to be angry, do you think?
Think of a special building or space which you find peaceful. Take a moment to think about just how lovely it is to be in that calm, peaceful place and take the time to stop and think.
Places of worship are designed to help people feel closer to God. They have special things in them to help remind us why we’re there.
Jesus was angry because people were not respecting the special place of worship as they should.
Whether it’s a Church, a Synagogue, a Mandir, a Mosque or another place of worship, it is always important to respect it in the right way. We have to understand how each place is important to the people who worship there so that we can be properly respectful.
This week we will be finding out a bit about some other places of worship.
Tuesday 30th June to Friday 3rd July
Below are links to three videos where a child visits their special place of worship and shows us around it.
Once you’ve had a look at these, maybe you’d like to design a place of worship and explain what is special about it to help worshipers feel closer to God.
Judaism: visit the Synagogue
Islam: visit the Mosque
Hinduism: visit the Mandir
