HAVE YOU BOOKED YOUR TICKETS FOR OUR CURRY & QUIZ NIGHT?

A new event on our calendar is an informal Curry and Quiz evening on Friday 15 June. You will be seated in teams by us so there is no pressure to book a table nor to be ‘super smart’! This day has been chosen as it is over a long weekend and we hope that you will be seeing your daughters and attending the Youth Day Fête during the morning. This Fête raises funds for STEPP, while also providing a platform for the Form 5 girls to develop their entrepreneurial spirit. The second Hilton/Michaelhouse derby is the following day so we thought that a Curry & Quiz evening during this weekend was well timed in the hope that you will be able to attend. Click on the link for full details of the evening.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Rev Sue spoke on how photographs of nature capture the glory of God. Photography of nature often stirs our hearts to a sense of awe and wonderment, and it takes us out of our self-centredness. She encouraged us to watch with our eyes, our hearts and our bodies as she showed a video depicting some of the majesty of God’s creation. Click on link to view the clip.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

This morning, our school community joined together to celebrate Ascension Day. The staff Worship Band made their debut appearance and together with the Chapel Choir contributed to making this a very meaningful occasion. Rev Susan spoke on the connection between science and faith, the head and the heart, and reminded us that the early scientists first discovered knowledge, and science grew out of wonder of God and His creation. Scientific discovery reveals how God made the universe. Today there is a wrestle between science or faith and this arises from the way in which we interpret the Bible. When faith and science are separated, God is squeezed out. When you see things with both the head and the heart, there is greater understanding.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Continuing with last week’s theme of love, where we looked at loving each other and loving ourselves, today Rev Susan looked at loving God. She used an analogy of Jesus as the vine and we, as believers, are the branches. Mindful and heartfelt prayer allows us to stay connected to the vine so that Jesus is able to flow through us. Praying with our minds enables us to think about others but when we pray with our hearts, we sit in God’s presence. This grows our ability to love Him which in turn enables us to love others and ourselves. Rev Susan reminded us that the most precious gift we can give to God is time spent with Him in prayer. She encouraged us to be still in His presence, to let go of distracting thoughts and to abide in His Love.
