Enquiry Question How do we know we belong? What do our homes say about us? Why do we need to communicate? How do living things change? How do we get around? Why should we care for the world?
Theological Underpinning John 4:19 ‘We love because he first loved us.’ For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. Timothy 1:7 For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. Peter 4:10-11
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
Chronicles 29:11 Lord, you are great and powerful. You have glory, victory and honour. Everything in heaven and on earth belongs to you. The kingdom belongs to you, Lord. Genesis 2:15 says “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. We recognize that all created things belong to God and that we are accountable to Him as stewards of the creation.
