IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

At this time of the year when girls are feeling stressed about exams, Rev Sue spoke about God’s plan to avoid burnout. It is important to let go of our anxieties as worry achieves nothing except to cause us to miss the present moment. The gift of the present is the only thing that is real. A short video clip was shown where Pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber talks further on this topic. Rev Sue reminded us that gratitude unlocks the fullness of life and we need to be grateful for everything in the present moment. In the words of Eckhart Tolle, she urged the girls to remember that “Through the present moment, you have access to the power of life itself.” Chapel closed with a short meditation, giving time for the girls to become present to the moment.
