Christ the King

Christ the King

This week the children thought about Jesus as our king. Despite being our king, they knew Jesus never had a palace, robes, jewels or a golden crown – only the crown of thorns given to him by the soldiers.  The children thought about why Jesus is our king. They thanked Jesus for the things he has shown them or helped them to achieve – honesty, courage, kindness, compassion, consideration etc.
