The Beatitudes - we are blessed

FOR FAMILIES, AHEAD OF SEPTEMBER 20

BridgeKIDS and adults will be going through the Beatitudes in our online gatherings this fall.

To read & a verse to remember
This week we’ll read the whole passage of the Beatitudes and the set up of where this took place and who Jesus was talking to and what a Beatitude is.
Read it in Matthew 4:23-5:12

Think About It
Yesterday we talked about there being enough in the kingdom of God. There is enough food for everyone, enough housing, enough love, enough medicine… but, in the world system this isn’t always the case because we aren’t as good at sharing as we should be.
Jesus taught that the kingdom of God was here because He made it so and now we get to continue what He started.
What systems need changing so that there is enough?
How can we help with that?

Pray together
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be your name,
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
Amen.

Eden led a really helpful meditation yesterday in the adult meeting that you might want to use with your kids. Here’s a link to the audio so you can have a listen.

THE BRIDGE CHURCH (ABBOTSFORD) PODCAST

Challenge
Draw and colour around the outside of the ‘we are blessed’ words or inside the letters… you can choose
In God’s kingdom, there is enough! There is enough clean water for all the people. There is enough rainforest for all the animals. There is enough time for all the families. There is enough love for everyone who feels lonely. There enough lunches for all the children at school. What else is there enough of in God’s Kingdom?
Take a photo of your finished - “we are blessed” picture and send it to me.

Remember Miguel
Have a Mexican meal and thank God for Miguel
Pray for safety for him and his family
Draw a picture or write a letter and I will send it for you

I’m praying for you!
Let me know if there is anything specific that you’d like me to be praying for in this season of life.
Love and peace to you all, hope to see you on Zoom this Sunday morning, 9:30
