Summer 1 - Forgiveness
We thought about a word we use a lot - perhaps every day and how sometimes it can feel like a very hard word to say. It’s a word we use when we’ve done something wrong and we want to make things better again and the word is ‘sorry’.
We thought about the last time we said sorry to someone and why.
We read ‘Jonah and the Whale’ from the Bible and talked about how Jonah found it hard to say sorry to God at the start. We agreed that saying sorry isn’t always easy, but that it’s important when we’ve done something wrong that we understand that it a first step to making things better again. Also that it doesn’t mean that the other person has to forgive us there and then and perhaps we’ll have to do other things as well so show we’re truly sorry. We thought that saying ‘I’m sorry’ is a great first step to making things better again and that we like to forgive people who say sorry to us.
