We Can All Serve
w/c 1 October 2018
In this week’s Gospel, we learn how the disciples wanted to keep the power to heal to themselves. In an enjoyable drama, we explore Jesus’ response to their jealous tendencies and then challenge the pupils to celebrate the abilities and character of others.
“If your hand should cause you to sin, cut it off.”
