 Inclusion

 

The word of the week is Inclusion!

Jesus calls all people to follow him. Jesus didn’t discriminate and often caused outrage by being friends with the kinds of people society didn’t like. There are many passages in the Gospels where he hear about Jesus’ selfless and caring nature towards those who were forgotten or oppressed.

As a Christian community we aspire to be like Jesus everyday, this means to love our neighbour no matter what their race, religion, ethnicity, age or gender is! Jesus was loving and inclusive to everyone.

This week think about those people who often get left out.

How can you show God’s love and compassion to them?

If you haven’t done so already, now is the time to change your ‘liturgical information poster’ on your form board.

We start our prayer with the sign of the cross…

As always, we begin with our word of the week video:

At the end of the video you will be asked to think if a Gospel reading that follows the theme of inclusion.  Instead of this, please tell us all about a time that you have felt included since you have returned to school.  We will look at the Gospel examples later this term! 🙂

 

 

As we reflect upon how we can be more inclusive as individuals and a school community, we ask God for the strength and wisdom to always do what is right and just…

Dear Lord, 

We pray that we work hard to succeed in all we do;

through faith, work and actions. 

May we follow the example of Saint Thomas Becket to deepen our faith, remembering that to work is to pray and that we should put our best effort into everything we do. 

We ask that All Saints’ continues to be a place where we respect one another and take responsibility for our actions.

Thank you for the opportunities You give us to grow as individuals each day in the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Amen

 

We end our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

We hope you have a great Monday!

We will now head over to the youth service who are going to give us a run down on this week’s celebrations and feast days. 🙂

How can you include God or your faith into your life this week? Could you attend mass – even through live stream, perhaps take the time to pray each morning or night? Remember to leave your thoughts in the comments box below 🙂

An introduction to Inclusion: carefully watch the video below in your forms…

Inclusion is a human right. 

As the video says, if every person can participate in society then inclusion succeeds.

Inclusion recognises that diversity is so important, therefore everyone’s needs should be respected. If inclusion succeeds everyone has the same opportunities to live, play and learn together.

It is normal to be different. God created us all in a unique way. If we all looked the same, spoke the same, thought the same then the world would be a boring place!

Diversity enriches our lives!

What can we do to make sure that we include everyone in our activities?  Don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments box below 🙂

Over the last few months many of you will have seen, heard and learnt a lot about the Black Lives Matter movement and the racial injustice that continues to happen across the world.

We mourn the fact that so many lives are not treated with dignity and justice.

As Christians it is important to remember that Jesus’ teachings of love and compassion to our neighbours are at the heart of everything we do.

Even in Jesus’ time people were treated differently because of the way they looked, the colour of their skin, where they came from or their religion.

Jesus gives us many examples of how we can be inclusive. The way that Jesus loved everyone inspires us as a Christian community to be the face of Christ each day.

Although this video is from America, so many of these issues ring true here in the UK.

 

“We are called to be Christ’s shining light”

How can you be a shining light? What can we do to ensure that racism doesn’t exist? I have given some examples below. Don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments box below 🙂

1. Celebrate other cultures

2. Call out bigotry and hate speech

3. Teach each other kindness and talk about our differences

4. Support human rights organizations like UNICEF

Lets do our bit to stamp out racism!

As always, we take time to listen to Sunday’s Gospel. This week we are going to hear from Mr Greig, some of you may remember him from his time at All Saints’, he is now head teacher at the Becket school.

Jesus told that story to his disciples so they we may aspire to love like God. Think about how you can treat the people around you with love, patience and kindness even when we may disagree with them or not see eye to eye.

How do we get past a disagreement?
