Thoughts for the Week, from the Chaplain

Week Beginning 12 November 2018

This week's theme: Curious


Daniel heard, but did not understand. So he said, “My lord, I am curious, what shall be the outcome of these things”.  Daniel 12:8 They said to Paul  “May we know what this new teaching is that you are presenting? For you bring some strange things to our ears. We wish to know therefore what these things mean.” Acts 17:19 &20

Do you always ask questions? Why? Are you willing to listen to new ideas even if they challenge your current thinking? Why/why not? Is it possible to understand everything? Is it our job to know all the answers?  What might be the consequences of this?


Prayer for this week

Dear God,
I do try my best but sometimes I get it wrong. Help me each day not to lose my hope in you. As I step forward into my future please remind me that your plans are better than dreams and your plans promise a future and a hope. Help me always to remember that nothing will happen that you and I can’t handle together.




The School Prayer

Eternal God,
Help us through our duty to you
To love our neighbour,
To care for others,
To do our best for and in school,
To work for the common good of our community,
And to care for ourselves as we serve you.
