Cycle 2: Summer 2 - Hope 

Nothing is hopeless; we must hope for everything. - Madeleine L’Engle

All human wisdom is contained in these two words: wait and hope. - Alexandre

Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic. - Laini Taylor

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.  Nothing can be done without hope and confidence. - Helen Keller

Cycle 2 - Summer 1 - Friendship

Luke 6:31

Treat others the same way you want them to treat you.

Cycle 2: Spring 2 - Humility

Colossians 3:12. 12

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

Cycle 2:  Spring 1 - Perseverance

Galatians 6:9 (NIV)

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 

Cycle 2: Autumn 2 - Forgiveness

Forgiveness can be a struggle for most. In life, people behave in ways that can offend us. Holding a grudge might feel natural, but the Bible encourages us to forgive.

Recent studies of forgiveness show that practising forgiveness can improve our mental and physical health. But how do we practice forgiveness and experience the peace it brings?

Jesus gives us the perfect example of forgiveness. While in agony on the cross, Jesus called out, exclaiming “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34).

“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” - Albert Einstein

Cycle 3: Spring 1 - Wisdom

The Bible Proverbs 4:6-7

Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
