Week beginning 24th February

Welcome back! We hope and pray that you have had a great half term holiday. In the lead up to Easter we will be focussing on the final quadrant of our Compass – COMPASSION. Following a break in 2019, we are once again going to be taking up the 40acts challenge. More details to follow…

In this QT for the first week back we will look at what compassion is using the cast of Glee!? (Don’t worry about the black screen for the first 10 secs… something does happen… honest!). In the video we learn that the Latin root of the word compassion means “to suffer with” meaning it is a much stronger word than many people think it is. Over the next 6 weeks we are going to think about who and how we can “suffer with” others to make our school and communities richer and stronger.

Prayer

Lord, forgive us for our lack of generosity for, compassion toward and understanding of the poor. Help us to see them as you see them and to behave and think in a loving way. Thank you that you do not value people according to their status or resources but love everyone because you made us all. Amen

God bless and have a great first week back!

Mr Baker
