Today we looked at poverty and in particular, the meaning of poverty. We realised that poverty can come in many different forms and that poverty still exists in many developed countries as well as those that are still developing.
We thought about the things that we own and / or value and we made a list of everything that is important to us. We then had to rank the three most important things that we just could not live without. We looked at our lists again and then crossed off three things that we felt we could do without. We then thought about what it would be like to live in a developing country and how and why our lists could look very different.
We realised that as Christians it is very important for us to try and help people in need and we talked about what we could do to help people in need. To help us understand what God expects from us, we looked at several verses from the book of Proverbs.
Next week it’s Harvest Thanksgiving so we will be in Church for the whole service.
