On the 6th of January we celebrate the feast of the Epiphany – when the wise men from the

east brought gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh to the baby Jesus.

 For us it’s an opportunity to think about the gifts we’ve been given and how we use them to serve God. It’s also a chance to give thanks for all those who give so much to us every day.

As we know, the wise men brought gifts when they visited Jesus. They brought gold, frankincense and myrrh, all of which had different meanings that we’ll discover later on in the week.

Below is a list of words, all of which are gifts in a non-traditional way. As a form, have a discussion about which three words you think best describe the gifts that you can offer to others and then comment them below. If you have words that aren’t on the list, feel free to add them in too. Let’s see what gifts our school offer as a whole!

Love

Laughter

Care

Empathy

Sympathy

Peace

Comfort

Joy

Calm

Respect

When the three wise men went to see Jesus, they were supposed to report back to Herod. But when they finally met him, they saw something in him and the angel appeared and told them not to visit Herod on the way back. How often do we look at people and realise that they’re not what we thought they were, or not what we had been told that they were? Listen to the song below, and consider the following questions:

How can we make sure that we don’t pre-judge others?

How does it feel when someone judges you before they even know you?
