To know the story of the Lost Sheep

Jesus told many stories about forgiveness. This is a very famous one called The Lost Sheep. You can watch one of the following versions of the story. You might recognise the second one as we have watched it in Wednesday Word last year. You can then choose one of these activities:

  • Imagine that you are the lost sheep and write a letter of thanks to the shepherd for finding you
  • Design a poster with the caption, 'God is my Shepherd'. Think about how you will illustrate your work.
  • Write a story that has the same message as The Lost Sheep story. Something needs to get lost and then needs to be found by somebody.
