Flourishing as humans is something we all aim for. It can look different, depending on our beliefs and circumstances. Christians believe that Jesus offers ‘life in all its fullness’ which isn’t a life without trouble, but a life lived with Him. A flourishing life is diverse, connected and outward-looking.



Aristotle on 'Flourishing'

What does it mean to flourish?

Jesus said, '‘I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.’' (John 10:10)


I wonder what this might mean for us? As we think about the ending of this school year and saying farewell to Year 6 as they step forward into the next phase of their education, how can we live life to the full?

How can we be the best that we can be?


Think about footballers. What do they have to do to be the best that they can be?


 Do they achieve this by themselves, or together?


Do you think they always feel good when they play football?


When things go well for you, who do you like to celebrate with? The Bible tells us that Jesus says that He has come that we might have life and life in all its fullness.

We can live life to the full when we live it together. Just as a football team that works together can flourish and succeed it's the same for us, when we support each other and work together we can flourish.

Life in all its Fullness

If you would like to you can say this prayer...


Dear God, Thank you that you want us to have life in all its fullness. Help us to work together to enable one another to flourish and to become the best that we can be. Amen
