What is extraordinary about Rosa's story?
What words would you use to describe her and her actions?
What have you learnt from her story?
Think about a time when you've experienced things that seem unfair .
What did you do? How did you feel? Draw a picture of the time and label it fair and unfair.
Sometimes it can be difficult to speak out against unfairness ... but sometimes all it takes is a single courageous act to begin to put things right again.
Dear God . Thank you for those people like Rosa who have the courage to take a stand. Help each one of us to take a stand when we see things around us that are unfair so that we can work together for a better world . Amen
Tied up in knots.
Sometimes we feel we are tied up in knots - stuck with work, tummy in knots and feeling unwell, confused and worried, Just like knots in trainer laces or in ropes, they take a while to untie. We need to share the problem with others and ask for help.
Loosen any knots of worry as we pray.
