Responses from Schools

Here's an overview of the content of the Bishop's Lent Challenge, along with some responses from Schools related to each session.

Week One: Filling our cups

Jesus said “I came to give life—life in all its fullness” John 10:10

  • How can we fill our own cups?
  • How can we fill the cups of those close to us?
  • How can we help fill the cups of those further away from us?
  • What do we need to start filling our cups?
  • What do you think Jesus means when he says we should live our life to all its fullness?

Week Two: God Shepherds us

“The Lord is my shepherd.” Psalm 23

  • Whose voice do we need to know? To follow?
  • Who would be the good shepherd, the greatest shepherd ever in David’s Psalm?
  • Who would lead all of God’s lambs back to where they should be, in God’s love?

Week Three: I am the Door

Jesus said “I tell you the truth. I am the door for the sheep.” John 10:7

  • How is Jesus like a good shepherd?
  • How does knowing Jesus help Christians to follow him?
  • How does a good shepherd show love for his flock?
  • How does the good shepherd give his life for the sheep?

Week Four: Looking out for others

John 10:10 “Life in all in it fullness” Matthew 22: 39 “Love your neighbour as yourself”

  • How can I self-care and fill my cup?
  • How can I help others to fill their cup?
  • When your cup is full – who do you help?
  • Who would you share your full cup with?

Week Five: Jesus and self-care

John 10:10 “That I came to give you life” Matthew 22: 39 “Love your neighbour as yourself”

  • How does Jesus self-care?
  • When do you think his cup was the fullest?
  • Do you think we should all have a mandatory rest day? In the past, no shops were open on a Sunday – should this happen again?
  • How well do you think Jesus looked after himself?
