IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Chapel this morning began with a quotation from Blaise Pascal about how there is vacuum within the human heart that can only be filled by God. Rev Susan pointed out that all religions are reaching towards God, which is why there is so much overlapping understanding. Rev then showed us a clip of an extraordinary interview with an imam who had been converted to Christianity through the Koran. He has subsequently been disowned by his family and received death threats. He now lives in a Catholic retreat centre in India. Jeremiah 29:13 states ‘You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.’

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Rev Susan continued her series on inner beauty by looking at our tendency to consider ourselves either greater or lesser than others. One slide read: ‘The ground is level at the foot of the cross’. Another gave a quotation from Gandhi: ‘The assumption of superiority over another human being is a crime against man and against God’. Susan unpacked what this might mean in practice for girls and staff at a privileged institution such as St Anne’s. She then read from Ephesians 2 (and urged us to read it again for ourselves). Susan concluded with this week’s Empathy and Diversity challenge. “When you said…….it made me feel…” This requires courage on behalf of the speaker and avoidance of defensiveness from the listener.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Rev Susan began with a statement to the effect that everyone at some point goes through hell but that some choose to hold onto pain and remain there. She followed this, firstly, with a clip of a motivational talk by a man who had lost both his arms and legs, and then with an extraordinary performance of ‘You raise me up’ by a young Chinese duet. We concluded by offering the day and its challenges to God and asking for His strength.

IN CHAPEL THIS MORNING

Rev Susan tackled the topic of inner ugliness as demonstrated in the way we talk about others. Sticks and stones may break our bones but it is words that we remember. The words she focused on - bringing them into the open and explaining their origins - were racial slurs and stereotypes. For our diversity challenge we then got into groups and talked about the derogatory terms that we personally found offensive. We ended with a prayer of forgiveness - forgiveness does not excuse a behaviour but it stops the behaviour damaging our hearts.

FATHER DAUGHTER TEAM DEFEAT DUSI

Form 4 St Anne’s Diocesan College pupil, Alice Perrow, and her father, Mark, paddled the Dusi Canoe Marathon recently, finishing in 199th position overall, 9th mixed doubles and 2nd father and daughter team. It was the toughest modern-day Dusi since the construction of Inanda dam in 1990, and according to her proud dad, Alice got through it admirably. Due to low water levels on Day 3, the athletes effectively had to run/walk 20km from Inanda Dam to Mango rapid. Temperatures were in excess of 40˚C resulting in several crews landing up in hospital with heat stroke and dehydration. Although Alice did not participate in the school training sessions due to clashes with her horse riding, she increased her fitness through cross country and trained on weekends.
