Week beginning 7th May

I hope and pray that you enjoyed the Bank Holiday Weekend. Key Stage Assemblies will be taken by Mr Burt and Jon Hancock from Belmont Chapel this week as we continue our “Character Crisis” series.

The QT for this coming week is about potatoes, eggs and coffee beans!?!? (go with it for a moment…). The video shows how a father replies to his daughter who was complaining about the challenges of life. Her Dad then shares with his daughter what happens to potatoes, eggs and coffee beans when they are placed in boiling water. The moral of the story could be summed up here:

In life, things happen around us, and things happen to us. The only thing that truly matters is your choice of how you react to it and what you make of it. Learn, adapt and choose to make the best of each experience.

We will be looking at how we respond to adversity and difficulties in an attempt to help us in the challenges we all face in day to day life. You can view the video here:

Prayer

Heavenly Father, please help us to respond well when life is tough. Help us to be a group of people who use challenging situations each day to learn, grow and develop. Amen

God bless

Mr Baker
