“Without forgiveness there is no future…. If you can forgive, then you can move on and even help the person you are forgiving to become a better person”
Desmond Tutu

Talk together about:
• A time when you needed to say sorry
• A time you didn’t say sorry but wish you had
• A time when you had to forgive someone who had hurt or upset you
• How it feels when you are given a new start because someone has forgiven you

Truthfulness

“To be truthful with others, you must first be truthful with yourself”
Anon

Thought of the Day

‘I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God’.  In a court of law a witness swears an oath on the Bible or another sacred text, but sometimes in everyday life people find it more difficult to be truthful.

Talk together about occasions when complete honesty could cause trouble or be hurtful. For example:
• When a member of your family asks you if you like their new shoes
• When telling the truth will get your friend into trouble
• When someone asks what you are thinking but the answer would hurt their feelings
