Starter: Brainstorm ideas about what you think about the light and darkness.
Write a poem about light and how it makes you feel. Create “mind maps” about light and darkness, and what light and darkness helps you to do, or stops you doing.
Read the story of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple. Mary and Joseph were fulfilling the Jewish Law by presenting Jesus in the Jewish Temple. This was an act of his consecration to God.
Read the Nunc dimittis. Highlight the words about Simeon.
Who is he saying the Prayer to, and what is he saying about the child Jesus? What title does Simeon give to God? What does the word “Salvation” mean? What does the word “Glory” mean? Simeon prayed that God had fulfilled his promise and had waited for this moment.
What do you think Simeon meant when he described Jesus as the “Light of the Nations?”
