Greggsy - Stations (Alex and Faye) - Zoe and Maisie - 10P3 rainbow - Science and Religion
Wow - what a week for assemblies! Today it was Mrs Gregg and the Sixth Formers! Here's one of the videos she showed us - very thought provoking!
ANyway, the theme was essentially the power of language (which is actually the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day on 27th January - more on that next week.)
Here's a lovely (and short video) about how language - that most precious of God's gifts - can make a difference!
I had great help today from Alex and Faye on Student Reception as well as Zoe and Maisie from Year 7 who helped set up the Chapel for a Stations of the Cross experience with Miss Hyland's lovely Year 10P3 class. While we were in there, a glorious double rainbow appeared and it seemed so fitting as the new covenant sealed with the blood of Jesus was being reflected upon! The rainbow is the sign of the agreement that God made with Noah at the end of the Great Flood!
The photo doesn't really do it justice. Suffice to say, it was a wow moment! Miss Hyland's class were a total delight as they thought about the different stations of that fateful journey on the road to Golgotha!
As I was leaving the Chapel, I bumped into one of the Science teachers who was also looking out of the window and revelling in the appearance of the rainbow! There we were, scientist and chaplain, both revelling in it's beauty, both appreciating it - maybe for different reasons - but science and religion do not exclude each other. They complement each other!
