This afternoon, we welcomed 'Open the Book' into school, who performed the bible story 'The Fiery Furnace', along with some volunteers from Buttercup and Primrose Classes.

In this story King Nebuchadnezzar built a golden statue of himself for everyone to worship. However, three men named Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to worship the statue because of their faithfulness to God. King Nebuchadnezzar sentenced them to be thrown into a fiery furnace, but they believed God would protect them from harm.  This story showed us that the three men demonstrated great courage in their faith.  

We finished with thinking about times when we might have needed to show courage.

Thank you, 'Open the Book' for a fantastic retelling of this bible story.
