Discoverers At Home – St David’s Day – 1st March

Whats today about?

Today is all about Saint David. Today is the day we remember him – March 1st. It’s also a time to remember everything Welsh. How many Welsh things can you list?

Saint David was a very important man he did lots of wonderful things. But he was humble he said to “remember the little things.”. St Paul wrote a letter to some Christians he knew in Colossae, the book is called Colossians in it he says “You are the people of God; He loved you and chose you for his own. So then, you must clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.” (Colossians 3:12) St David definitely lived up to this and is an example to us all!

Today we are going to hear the story of Saint David, reflect together, pray and have a song.

Craft – Daffodils

Daffodils are often seen with St David. We can see a lot of daffodils this time of year both growing and in the shops. They are something which is quite common but they are still beautiful and can bring us joy. Saint David learnt to take joy in the little things, sometimes it can be hard to see joy but as we make our daffodils maybe have a think about what little things bring you joy and give thanks to God for them.
