Jesus' Wonderful Love Unit
➜ Book 1, pp.29-80.
The Jesus' Wonderful Love unit invites young children to take part in telling Jesus' parables about God's love for us, as well as exploring Jesus' command that his followers share that love with others.
Within this unit there are also plenty of opportunities to explore a range of emotions such as feeling lost, scared, sorry, found, lonely, treasured, guilty, surprised and joyful, and to bring these opportunities before God.
