Listen to this song and light a candle (with a grown ups permission) and take this moment to calm and quiet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u21TsBONu_I
What does it mean to be strong to you?
This time of year is Lent.
Lent is a time to REPAIR:
Inward challenge: It might be relationships that we have neglected, or promises that we have broken, and saying sorry is a start to repairing the hurt.
Outward challenge: To raise the concerns of those in the world who are disadvantaged, and support them through are charitable giving.

Read this story:
The man who was a bridge
It was 1987. The ferry set sail from Zeebrugge on time. All the people and cars were loaded. It carried holiday-makers returning home, businessmen and long-distance lorry drivers. All of them would have had thoughts of their families and homes that lay some five hours’ sailing time away.
The men on the bridge guided the huge vessel carefully out of port. The restaurant opened for service and people settled down for the voyage. The men on the car deck were making a last check of the fittings that held the cars and lorries in place. The giant mouth of the entrance to the deck was still gaping open revealing a huge swell of sea. The doors should have been closing. Instead, in an awful moment, the sea flooded in. The ferry lurched under the extra weight. The cars and lorries shifted. The vessel began to list heavily to one side.
Shouts and screams filled the public areas. Tables, chairs and luggage slid downward carrying people into the rising water and mud. Top became bottom, ceilings became floors, panic gripped everyone. Some passengers out on deck were rescued very quickly. Others were not so lucky. It was a time for cool heads and bravery to save and rescue as many as possible. One group of people escaping from the cafeteria came face to face with a gaping hole which they could not cross. Beyond it was their only way out. Among them was Andrew Parker, a strapping man of more than six foot. He laid himself across the gap and the water that was rising fast. People climbed across his body to safety. Mums, dads and children, more than twenty people in all, were saved by the man who made himself a bridge.
Andrew Parker was awarded the George Medal for his bravery. Afterwards he said he was not trying to be a hero, he just did was he thought was right. A total of 31 people received awards for their bravery and courage on that day.
Your Task is to create a list of people who are doing jobs that are hard and that help others. You can present this in any way that you want.
Here is my example.
A Doctor risks their lives to make sure that other people can get better. They work long hours, working is stressful environments and it can be a very difficult job. They make sure that we stay safe.
Some other jobs could be:
- Ambulance Driver
- And so many more!
