Enquiry Question “How can we be a global village if we don’t understand one another?” “Why do people move?” “How do stories and poems express what we believe about the world?” “How can technology help humans access what they need to survive?” “What do laws, traditions and customs tell us about what it means to be British?” How can we collaborate to share the worlds’ resources fairly?
Theological Underpinning So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of god, Ephesians 2:19 ‘and people will come from east and west , and from north and south, and recline at the table in the kingdom of god.’ luke 13:29 ‘But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you.’ job 12:7-10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10-11 Now I praise you because you remember me in everything and hold firmly to the traditions, just as I delivered them to you. 1 Corinthians 11:2 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13:16
