On Wednesday 28th November, Year 5 led worship thinking about journeys in the Christmas story. We also told everyone about journeys in Christmas traditions around the world such as the Posada in Mexico. Finally, we thought about the most astounding journey of all. The most wonderful journey made that first Christmas was when Jesus, God Himself, came down from Heaven to Earth. His name Emmanuel means ‘God with us’.
He came to Earth and lived here as one of us. He came to show us His amazing love and to die and rise from the grave so we could be friends of God. His journey from Heaven to the cross was the longest of all the journeys and the only one that was done totally out of love.
