How would you like to be treated? The “Golden Rule” of Christianity is to treat others how we would like to be treated. In groups of four, take a set of the cards from the next slide. Put the cards face down in a pile next to one of the outline maps of Wiltshire. Instructions: In turns, take a card and read it to the group. Ask the pupil on your left whether you would like to be treated like this or not. “I would / would not like to be treated …. because…” Then decide what you think and explain your ideas. Place the card inside or outside the Wiltshire map, according to whether you would like to be treated like this or not.

Look at the maps of Wiltshire. What values have you included and excluded? How do you want to be treated and not treated in Wiltshire? Clearly, given the Golden Rule, this indicates how we should all treat others. As a group, decide the most important six values and turn them into your own 6 Guidelines for a Respectful Wiltshire. Explain why they are important. In Wiltshire we should all treat others … because … On your own map, write the values you think are most important inside the county. Write a few words to explain your thinking.
Learning from religion and belief: Look at the guidelines from five religions and a non- religious viewpoint on the next slide. Which statements are similar to your group’s guidelines for respectful living? Which are different? Why? Do these ideas add anything helpful to your ideas?
i) A man once asked the Prophet Muhammad what was the best thing is Islam, and he replied, “It is to feed the hungry and to give the greeting of peace both to those you know and to those you do not know.” Islam: Hadith of Bukhari ii) Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul and all your strength. Love your neighbour as you love yourself. Judaism and Christianity: Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18 iii) Whenever you see someone else hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and do not look after them, you do not look after me, said Jesus. Christianity: Matthew 25:31-46 iv) Let your aims be common and your hearts united, and all of you be of one mind, so you may live well together. Hinduism: Rig Veda 10.191.4 v) The only possible basis for a sound morality is mutual tolerance and respect: tolerance of one another’s customs and opinions; respect for one another’s rights and feelings; awareness of one another’s needs. Non-religious: A J Ayer, The Humanist Outlook vi) There is no greater penance than patience, no greater happiness than contentment, no greater evil than greed, no greater virtue than mercy, and no more potent weapon than forgiveness. Sikhism: Guru Amardas
A creative response a) Design a logo for a respectful Wiltshire – remember that there are many people from different religions and nations in Wiltshire. or b) Create an artwork that expresses your idea of how people should treat each other. or c) Create an artwork entitled: “Changing the world one step at a time.” Write a short piece of 100-150 words explaining your artwork
The small red box in the centre symbolises the love in our world through every religion and race. The circle, which the hands and the box are stuck onto, stands for the sunshine beaming down, making everybody happy and peaceful. The hands in which the symbols are held symbolise united races and religions. The religious symbols show that every religion in the world counts. My work means: no matter what colour or religion there should still be happiness, love and unity through the world. We are all equals. Jess, age 13
