This weeks word of the week is Faith, which is quite appropriate for the times at the moment. Faith is all about believing in something and placing your trust in it, and in the case of Christians and Catholics, that faith and belief lie in God.

A reading from the letter of St Paul to the Ephesians.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.
The Word of the Lord (Thanks be to God)

Having faith can be tough. It means believing in something that you cannot know for certain and in a world where there is an answer for almost everything this can be difficult. Have a think about your faith and what you believe in. What makes it hard to believe in God?
Asking questions is a really important part of growing in faith so this week take some time to ask questions of the people around you – ask them why they believe what they do, and through this try to understand your own faith a little bit more.

“A light that shines in the dark, a light that darkness could not overpower.”

John 1:5

Our first song this week is a song called Cornerstone, by Hillsong Worship. It’s all about building up your faith and your relationship with God and has some really beautiful lyrics in it.

This second song is called Give Me Faith and is by Elevation Worship. This acoustic version of the song is particularly heartfelt and lovely. It’s all about asking God to help us with our faith and to make us stronger and more open to God and his word.

Watch this clip about faith. As you watch it think about how you might react if you were in that girls position. Then spend some time thinking or writing down the ways you show that you have faith. Are there times when you doubt your faith? Why? How can we try a little harder each day to have a little more faith?
