Lent calendar for families for 9 April

A sheep with her lamb

Where can we see signs of new life?

“I will gather them and guard them as a shepherd guards his flock.” 

Jeremiah 31:10

In today’s scripture we hear how God is our shepherd and will protect us as a shepherd looks after his sheep. We hear in other places that Jesus is also called the good shepherd and cares for us in this way. The good shepherd cares for all his sheep; every one of them is important, just as everyone in the world is important to God.

How can we show that every person has dignity and value?


At this time of year we can see signs of new life around us, like lambs in a field or flowers in the park. Why not go for a family walk and see how many signs if new life you can see?
