IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

The girls of Frances Baines took Chapel this morning. As it is Mandela Day, they focused on Nelson Mandela and his attitude of forgiveness towards those who caused him harm. Although forgiveness is often not easy, it is very powerful as it sets us free from the hurt and anger which we may harbour towards others. Mandela was a spiritual man and he was able to forgive others in God’s strength. Forgiveness allows one to empathise with another person and understand that perhaps they are going through something which causes them to hurt others. Forgiveness is both liberating and rewarding and it frees us to serve others. The girls were urged to spend 67 minutes today serving others to honour Nelson Mandela and the legacy he left us.

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.
