Sunday May 24th

Hi Everyone,

I do hope you are all well.

Our theme this week is The Bible and Rainbow Colours.

This week I was able to go out more and during my journey to the supermarket I noticed the lovely rainbow pictures put in the windows of many houses.  I expect you have all been painting your rainbows !  Rainbows are a sign of hope and promise.

We all remember the first rainbow God gave us, He promised a good future for Noah and his family after the terrible flood.  God promised that never again would a flood destroy everything.  Ref: Genesis chapters 6,7,8 & 9.

Here are some ways that colours link with ideas, biblical events and thoughts.

The colours of the rainbow are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and violet.

Red: Reminds us of Christmas, the birth of Christ

Orange: Christingles, the oranges with the red band round the middle and the candles.

Yellow:    Reminds us of creation – light also of good and evil, light and darkness.

Green:      The world is clothed in green

Blue:        Mary, mother of Jesus, gentleness, purity, love.

Purple:    Royal, God the ruler of the world.

Violet:     Represents truth and suffering.  Our Christmas Advent wreath always has a pink candle in it.

Suggested activities:

  1. Add more ways in which each colour links with biblical thoughts.
  2. Draw or paint flowers showing each colour
  3. If you haven’t painted a rainbow yet why not have a go ?
  4. If you feel very adventurous build a paper ark and put a rainbow over it.

Please take a picture of your artwork or ideas and send it to the Sunday Stars link

Have fun, take care, love and best wishes.

Irene,
