(page 3)The NEW Gospel WeekliesPFLAUM GOSPEL WEEKLIES Faith Formation ProgramTG1-22Share ExperiencesObjective The children will consider the consequences of choices.Gather in a prayer circle. Play and sing “We Will Walk With God” (Venture/Visions CD-2, #8).Gathering Prayer Ask the children if they have concerns they would like to share in prayer. Begin by saying one of your own. Gather all concerns in a prayer of trust to God.Cover Activity l Words to Wise Wordfind (page 1) This Sunday’s Gospel has one of those saying of Jesus that we often hear out of context: “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.”The children will recognize most of the sayings in this word nd. Provide Bibles in case they need to look up the Scripture citations.Cover Story l The Project (pages 1-3) Have the children glance at pages 2–3 so they can see this week’s story has multiple endings—and they will choose which one. Turn backto the cover and read the  rst column of the story. Discuss if Chris and Maeve (pronounced Mave to rhyme with gave) should copy the material. If the children think copying any part of the report is wrong, they read ending F on page 3. This is the most honest solution, but they will be interested in what happens if Chrisand Maeve decide just a little copying is all right. Read the other endings as a group.Discuss Think on page 3. You will learn a lot about what you children consider honest. Conclude that all decisions have consequences. If the two children had copied andthe teacher did not notice, what would the consequences be? They might feel bad about copying, but they would also know it sometimes works and be tempted to do it again.Discover Gospel and DoctrineObjectives l The children will:l Learn about the Pharisees in Jesus’ time.l Discover how all faithful Catholics also must be goodcitizens.Gospel Ritual Move to the area you have set up for the Gospel reading. Ask the children who are not reading parts to put down their Venture lessons and listen. As you prepare the children to listen to this Sunday’s Gospel, play “Word of Truth and Life“ (CD-1, #1).Gospel l Give to Caesar and to God (page 4) Have the children examine the Roman coin pictured and read the Gospel Background section. Have four children take parts and proclaim the Gospel.Discuss the Think questions on page. Answers: 1. They thought Jesus might say it was not necessary to pay taxes, which would get him in trouble with the Romansand supporters of Herod. If Jesus said taxes were good, the Pharisees could accuse him of agreeing Rome should be in charge. 2. Jesus knew the Pharisee intended to pay the tax because he had a Roman coin. Jesus’ answer satis es both obligations and asks people to make judgments using this principle. 3. Respectfor God’s creation, the environment, Earth, and all people; time spent in prayer, thanks, and praise. 4. Encourage their responses. Remind them time spent in prayer or in service are two ways they show their gratitude to God.Connecting Gospel and Doctrine lWe Have Duties to God and Others(page 4) Read this feature together. Discussing politics and religion could spark intense responses even among Venture-age children. Remind the children that debate should remain polite and respectful.Turn to the Think questions at the end of the doctrine. Answers: 1. Children can be good citizens by being good students, volunteers, and members of clubsor teams. 2. If the children seem intrigued by writing their own laws, assign this as homework. Compare their responses to the Ten Commandments. Are there any similarities?Distribute the children’s What the Church Believes and Teaches handbooks.Teaching This Week’s LessonWHAT THE CHURCH BELIEVES AND TEACHES HANDBOOKWhat the Church Believes and TeachesThe Ten Commandments Are for Everyone (pages 32–35)Remind the children that the Ten Commandments come from the Bible.
