IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

St Anne's Old Girl and former Boardermistress, Ali Coleman, spoke in Chapel on “Disappointment”. We all face disappointment in our lives, whether it be disappointment in people, in circumstances, in God or in ourselves. It can stop us from living with hope and expectancy because we are scared of being disappointed again. Ali reminded the girls that our hope is in God so that even though we may face disappointment, we can still trust God and we must be prepared to follow Him in spite of it. Rather than dwell on why it happened and allowing it to shipwreck our faith, we must forgive, keep hoping, and keep moving forward.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Rev Sue's text this morning was from John 15 which speaks of God being the true vine, and Jesus being the gardener. We are the branches and as such, we need to abide in Him to enable us to bear fruit. As a vine with good roots produces fine grapes, so it is with us. If we stay connected to Jesus, His Holy spirit flows through us and we bear the fruits of the Spirit in our lives. After the SCA Camp held at the weekend, those who attended said they returned feeling rejuvenated because they had connected with God again. Rev Sue encouraged all the girls to stay connected to God as this will be their strength in the last two weeks of term.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Taking her message from Proverbs 3 vs. 5-6, Rev Sue reminded the girls that God is trustworthy and as a community we can share our understanding of God. We are called on to acknowledge Him in our daily lives and if we learn to see Him everywhere, we become more aware of Him so that He is able to direct our paths. Rev Sue encouraged the girls to use the Gift of Blessing – to bless others, our interaction with people, our everyday situations and in this way we acknowledge God more. It also teaches us the gift of gratitude and at the end of each day, if we reflect on the blessings of that day, our way of life becomes more positive.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Rev Sue’s topic this morning was “Life Hacks”, the short cuts which we take to make life better. She spoke of the “invisible” people in our lives, people we choose not to see because we consider them to be different for a variety of reasons. She challenged the girls to think of what would happen if these same people were one day asked to write a reference for us on a job application. How people treat others tells us everything we need to know about that person, and integrity is everything. In the time of Jesus, there were people who practised Orthodoxy (believing in what is right) and Orthopraxis which means actually living what we know is right. We need to live out our faith in the way we treat others and to see people through the eyes of Jesus.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Rev Sue explained that everything is spiritual, and said that even though we compartmentalise our lives into little boxes, God is in all things. He formed us as unique individuals and He does not judge us. We tend to judge ourselves harshly when we make mistakes but God looks at our mistakes and shows us how we can learn from them. God is beside us in everything we do and we find God in unexpected places each day. With Lent starting on Wednesday, Rev Sue suggested that we reach out to others in some way during this time and so become more focussed on God in our everyday lives.
