Be bold and be kind







We read Library Lion by Michelle Knudsen. When a lion visits the library, no one knows what to do: there are no rules about lions in the library. But soon he's indispensable - "What a helpful lion," people say. "How did we ever get along without him?" But one day the head librarian falls and breaks her arm, and the only way the lion can get help is to roar. And that is breaking the rules. The next day the lion doesn't come to the library, nor the next day, nor the day after that - until Mr McBee finds him and tells him that sometimes there is a very good reason to break the rules - even in the library!

In the bible story from the book of Luke, chapter 13: 10-17, we read about Jesus healing a bent over woman on the Sabbath, breaking the rule.

We were reminded that God loves us all the time, every day, and Jesus wants us to share God’s love with others - every day too. 

We talked about being BOLD like the Library Lion, going out of our way to help others, show kindness and the love of God - anywhere, any day, anytime.
