Week 5 - Shelter from the Storm
For our fifth week we use 'Shelter from the Storm' as our theme.
Let us Welcome each other to our Collective Worship and light our candle.
We have gathered in the name of the Father,
Son and Holy Spirit, to worship together and think
about our value forgiveness.
When people take part in walking pilgrimages, they need to find shelter at night, some will camp, some will book places to stay along the way. Sometimes during a day’s walking, people will need to take shelter or find a place of safety. Our fifth item is shelter. Watch the video to find out more about the shelters found on Lindisfarne in Northumberland, also known as Holy Island, and where we can take shelter during the storms of life.
This week's scripture reading is from the Book of Psalms from the Old Testament. Think of these questions as you listen to it:
Is God ever present in your life? When our 'earth gives way' who steadies you?
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
We finish our Collective Worship with a prayer:
Jesus, friend and saviour, be with us in the storms of life.
Encourage us to step out of our comfort zone.
Help us to be open to new things and to grow in confidence.
Help us to see ourselves as you see us, full of potential for good.
