and each time I presented work for assessment I
panicked.

64
Gospel theme
  • Forgiveness (Matthew 1821-35)
  • In chapter 18 Matthew presents a block of
    teaching concerned with the relationship among
    Christians, or life in the church. After dealing
    with the need to recall sinners to repentance and
    seeking the lost, Matthew turns attention to the
    issue of forgiveness. Christians are people who
    have been forgiven much by God and should,
    therefore, go on showing forgiveness to others.
    The point is made in the parable of the slave who
    was forgiven a large debt but who refused himself
    to forgive a small debt. To forgive is to mend
    and to restore relationships.
  • We can begin to experience the significance of
    Matthew's teaching on forgiveness by exploring
    our own experiences of mending and of the mender.

65
Aims
  • to build on our experiences of people who mend
    and restore things
  • to help us see forgiveness as mending
    relationships
  • to want to be forgiving people.

66
EXPLORING WITH CHILDREN
67
Starting
  • Look at something broken and in need of repair.
  • Discuss this, drawing out ideas of
  • how it could be mended
  • broken things around the house
  • how they are mended and who mends them
  • how we feel when a precious object is repaired
  • sometimes our friendships need mending.

68
Talking points
  • Look at Jesus' story from Matthew about
    forgiveness. Talk with the children about the
    significance of this. You could include the
    following points
  • Jesus said it is important to forgive
  • the first slave was forgiven a lot of money
  • he refused to forgive a small amount
  • God has forgiven us
  • we should forgive and mend relationships.

69
Activities
  • Dress up as menders - builder, mechanic, shoe
    repairer, etc.
  • Act out Jesus' story of the unforgiving servant.
  • Prepare thank you cards to give to a person who
    has mended something for you.

70
Display
  • Today's theme is forgiveness.
  • Jesus said to forgive and forgive again.
  • Dear God, help us to be forgiving people.
  • Forgiveness mends broken friendships.
  • Our work today is about the mender.

71
EXPLORING WITH ADULTS
72
Experience
  • What are your experiences of people who mend and
    restore things?
  • What are your experiences of restored
    relationships?
  • How useful is the image of the mender to
    illuminate forgiveness?

73
Gospel
  • What does this gospel say about forgiveness?
  • How do you interpret this message for today?
  • What do you understand by the number
    seventy-seven?

74
Application
  • How can the church help people to forgive?
  • How can you become more forgiving?
  • How can the worship of the church promote
    forgiveness?

75
CELEBRATING TOGETHER
76
Welcoming children
  • At an appropriate point in the service invite
    the children to present their work on the mender.
    At the Peace a special point can be made of
    restoring broken relationships. If the children
    have dressed themselves as menders, they can be
    invited to share in the Peace dressed in this way.
