God created us all equal – not all the same. Each and every person is an unique and special creation of God and this week we need to celebrate all of the things that make us who we are and that make other people individual. We are told that being ‘different’ is bad and that we should be ‘normal’ but there is no such thing as normal! Take some time to find the things we love about the people around us and praise and celebrate them for their individuality.

Make sure you use the last moments of each morning to come together in Prayer, starting and finishing with the Sign of the Cross and reflecting on what your discussions mean for you today. You could also take the opportunity to share those things of people that need your prayers this week with each other.

Let us know what you think and what you’d like to see here!

Should we always allow everyone to be themselves? Should every viewpoint be allowed? Should everyone have the freedom to do whatever they desire? Being an individual comes with responsibility. Our big debate question this morning is:

Should all individuals be allowed to live their lives and express their opinions however they want to?

As always add to the discussion below in the comments box!

    Thursday mornings are about doing things together as a whole school community. This morning we’re going to try and get the whole community doing something at EXACTLY the same time. Check out the clock below, it’s synced to the internet so it should be displaying the same time in every classroom.

    We’re going to try and pray this prayer about individuality by Blessed Cardinal Henry Newman:

    God has created me to do Him some definite service.
    He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another.
    I have my mission.
    I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next.
    I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.
    He has not created me for naught. I shall do good;
    I shall do His work.
    I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place,while not intending it if I do but keep His commandments.

    Therefore, I will trust Him, whatever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him, in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him. If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. He does nothing in vain.

    He knows what He is about.

    Start praying it out loud at 8:55am exactly and open your doors! Hopefully you’ll be able to hear the other forms praying it too!

      Lord, help us to listen to your word and hear your voice in our lives. Amen
