Liturgical Year: 4th Sunday in Lent Cycle: B
Gospel: John 3: 14 – 21

 

God loves us and wants us to live joyfully! Marking both Mothers’ Day and Laetare Sunday, this assembly falls half-way through Lent and celebrates the joy to be found in caring for others. A short film about Gandhi helps children consider the reason for Lenten self-denial and the possibilities this offers them.

Gandhi thought about the person he might be able to help rather than about his own comfort. He knew that his own discomfort would not last long, so he seized the opportunity to give lasting help to another person. The reason we give something up (Pray, Stop, Go) in our Lent adventure is so that we can be more freely available to others. This very often makes us happy too! The more we care about the person we are helping, the more joyful we’ll feel about doing things for them - just like how we felt when we celebrated our mums on Mothers’ Day! What can you give to your family, friends, teachers, community, etc. that would make you and them happy?
