Half Term

Summer Term 2nd Half: Value: Courage
Basic to Christian faith is the claim that God is always present in every situation.  This belief has led to great acts of courage that have included facing danger and opposition, overcoming fear, making a stand for what is right and encouraging others to persevere.  Through prayer people have found the strength to help them to be courageous.


Encouraging Others:

Christians believe that in times of difficulty they can pray to God for encouragement and strength.  It is also important to offer help and encouragement to others facing difficulty.
