Awesome- The Becket – 12th-16th July

“For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe.”

Deuteronomy 10:17

Our Word of the Week this week is

AWESOME

Awe and wonder is an amazing gift of the Holy Spirit. It’s the ability to see the incredible things God has created and not take them for granted. How easy is it for us to get bored and stop appreciating how lucky we are to have a beautiful world, an amazing school and people who love us? This week try and look again at those things which maybe you don’t fully appreciate.

How can you celebrate what is really awesome in your life?!

The Trinity Year 10 Chaplaincy Team have demonstrated how awesome they are by creating our resources for this week, so a huge thank you to them!

Olympics Schools Challenge: 

We need you to submit your steps as we take part in the race to Tokyo, it’s as easy as that!

Our school is taking part of a #triptoTokyo Olympic Steps challenge, we are competing against three other schools (Trinity, Christ the King and St Bedes) to see which school can get to Tokyo first in time for the Olympic Opening ceremony!

Not only are we competing against the 3 schools but within The Becket School we are running a House Competition to see which house can submit the greatest distance!

At the end of June we celebrated the Solemnity of St Peter and St Paul with a live stream from our very own chapel. Each school was asked to write a letter to another school to share the good news from that school. Our school pair was All Saints and you can find their letter to us below. Spend some time in your forms reading the letters, maybe you could have a volunteer to read each part of the letter. May we follow in St Paul’s footsteps and reach out to those who are in need of knowing the love of Jesus Christ.

For a clearer view click on the letter and enjoy!

Leading up to the Euros final on Sunday, Guvna B, a Christian artist wrote this brilliant piece for sky sports to celebrate the awesomeness of diversity in the men’s England Team and the huge achievement that is reaching the final of the men’s Euros for the first time.

The world woke up on Monday morning to Black players on the men’s England team being subject to a storm of online racist abuse after their defeat to Italy in the Euro 2020 final.

A vandalised mural of England footballer Marcus Rashford has become a symbol of love and solidarity after hundreds of well-wishers covered it with anti-racism messages of support.

England Manager Gareth Southgate said at a Monday morning news conference that the abuse was “unforgivable” and “just not what we stand for.” He continued: “We have been a beacon of light in bringing people together, in people being able to relate to the national team, and the national team stands for everybody.”

This week we have seen many young people and schools write letters to members of the men’s England team. Can you write a letter, poem or rap in groups or as a form to the men’s England team or to a specific player? Send in your piece of work once you have!

 

Leader/Young person – Let us Pray together:

God our Father, give us the courage to stand up against racism and hate crime. Give healing to those who have experienced the hurt of racial abuse. 

Amen.

Today we would like you to watch this video of Jesus healing a blind man – this resembles God’s awesomeness.

 

Leader/Young person – Let us Pray together:

Thank you for always being their with out arms to welcome us back in when we haven’t done the right thing.
