What is ‘echolocation’. What features give you more information about echolocation?

There are a range of the sayings of Jesus which can help those who share his life today. Including: “I am the light of the world.” “Love your enemies.” “Love one another as I have loved you.” “Whatever you do to the least of these people you did to me.” “Let the children come to me.”

What is the differences between light and darkness? What can we do in the light that we can’t do in the dark? If Jesus is the light of the world, how can his light help and guide people? What can Jesus help people see? What can he show people by his example?


Children to write prayers on candles. Use “Jesus you are the light” as a starting point.
