Harvest time is a special time of celebration in church where we thank God for all the good things we have to eat and enjoy time together as a family. In school today we have had time as a school family, thinking about how we should share what we have with others. We have shared food, thoughts, smiles and fun and we have used the verse:
"When you harvest your land, don’t harvest right up to the edges of your field or gather the gleanings from the harvest. Don’t strip your vineyard bare or go back and pick up the fallen grapes. Leave them for the poor and the foreigner. I am God, your God.”
Leviticus 19 v 9-10
It is important to say thank you for all that we have and also share some of what we have with others. Many children brought donations in for the local food bank and we spent time thinking about how some people have a lot and others don’t, across our area, country and across the globe.
For 18 months we have been unable to worship as a whole school family. Today we gathered in the warm September sunshine under our oak tree 🌳 to launch our value for the term - FRIENDSHIP.
So many small traditions and events make a school family strong, meeting together for collective worship is one of those. Everyone needs to stop and think each day about what we are grateful for and how we can be the hands and feet of Jesus in this world.
Today we are grateful that we can meet together.
