SCHOOL WORSHIP – CONFESSION
This idea, originally from Revd Sonia Falaschi-Ray, may be used in school collective worship on Ash Wednesday:
As a form of confession, the children are invited to suggest sins that they would like to see the back of – they may be anything from personal to global. Each suggestion may be explained/explored etc a little, then is written on a red piece of paper and put into a large bin labeled ‘sin bin’ with these words:
Leader: We bin this sin.
All: We bin this sin.
The bin and some spare red papers may be left in school for the whole of Lent, to enable children to add to it if they wish.
