IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING
We celebrated the start of the 3rd Term with a full school Eucharist. Rev Susan reminded the girls of the importance of loving God, loving your neighbour and loving yourself. She explained that the Hebrew word for the love of God is HESED which translates to loving kindness, consistency, compassion, mercy and justice. It is important for us to be a channel for God’s love so that the more love God pours into us, the more love flows from us to others. Self-indulgence, fear and busyness are some of the things that prevent us from channelling this love to others. She stressed the importance of self-love and compassion towards ourselves which opens us up to receive God’s love. As we receive this, we are able to pour out love and compassion to those around us.
