Reflection Time and Prayer of the Day

Good Morning Brown Clee!

Yesterday we enjoyed watching La Luna and thought about how the young boy had the courage to find his own way – to be true to himself and not feel he had to copy his father and Grandpa.

Today I have a different story for you to enjoy – it is called Tin Toy.  Have a watch and think about any messages that you can pick out of it…

The Tin toy goes through a range of different emotions, from happiness to fear, to sadness and joy – can you explain why?

The message that I picked out from this film (and your message might be very different!) is that sometimes it is ok to be scared and worried about something – but often we don’t need to be – we just need to find the right solution.  The tin toy was scared that the baby was going to break him, so he ran away and hid.  But actually he didn’t need to be scared, he just needed to help baby to find a different toy to play with.

What was your message?

So here’s a song that might have helped Tin Toy not to worry too much….

 

Prayer of the Day

Dear God,
We pray for those who are worried about things today.
We pray for those who are worried about things that have happened in the past and for those who are worried about what might happen in the future.
We ask that you be their friend and help them.
We pray also that you will help us to be good, kind friends to those who are worrying today.
Amen.
