15th February

The junior and senior classes combined today, as many of the children were away. (This week is a school holiday in Edinburgh.)

We spent some time talking about selected verses in Proverbs.

There will be no Sunday School next week (22nd February).

8th February

Today, we started a series on Proverbs.

We began our lesson by looking at some pictures of road signs, like this one:

There is a book called "The Official Highway Code", which is full of signs like this. It helps drivers of motor vehicles to drive correctly and safely.
In some ways, Proverbs is a little like this book. It is full of rules that help us to live well. We selected six verses from Proverbs to look at this week, and had a go at creating 'road signs' to illustrate them.

1st February

Today, we talked about another person who changed completely after meeting Jesus.

Saul encountered Jesus on the road to Damascus. He was on his way to find Christians to take to Jerusalem as prisoners.

After meeting Jesus, Saul (who changed his name to Paul) devoted his life to preaching the good news about Jesus Christ. You can read about Saul's conversion in Acts 9.

Many of the letters to churches (for example, Romans) in the New Testament were written by Paul.

For our craft activity, we drew happy and angry faces on paper plates (one on the back and one on the front).
