Thoughts for the Week, from the Chaplain

Week Beginning 19 February 2018

This week's theme: Wellbeing

Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellbeing of life. Proverbs 4:23

What do you need to guard your heart from? 
How can you keep your heart healthy both physically and emotionally? How would you describe wellbeing?

So don't be anxious about tomorrow. God will take care of your tomorrow too. Live one day at a time. Matthew 6:34

 

What things weigh you down and cause you worry? What can you do to lift those worries from yourself, from others? What strategies can you employ to make yourself/others less anxious? Try to concentrate on living each day to the full and not worrying about tomorrow.

Prayer for this week

Lord Jesus Christ, We thank you for calling everyone to share in your healing work, Strengthen and equip us as we offer ourselves to be helped and to help others. Through your Holy Spirit inspire all to come and share in the fullness of life you desire for us. In this community of St.Olaves may we always be concerned for the wellbeing of one another, so that together we may be more effective channels of your love and peace.
AMEN

 

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.

Amen
