Learning Focus 3
Our Unique God Given Qualities and Gifts and our Appreciation Of Difference.
Look at this reading from the Bible:
You are created by God to be like God. You are God’s people, his saints. He loves you. You are all different. You come from different places, speak in different ways, have different customs. But the important thing is that you are God’s children. So love one another, help one another, be at peace with one another. And let the love of Jesus fill your hearts and minds.
Based on Colossians 3:10-11
