Act of Worship – Inclusion- Mrs Batley

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?

Make sure you check out this week’s ‘Extra-Ordo-Nary’ episode from The Brairs team…we’re very excited to have them visit our community on Friday to work with our Year 7’s! 🙂

Click on the different tabs below to explore this week’s prayer resources. We hope you have a great week!

Let us start our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

 

 

As we reflect upon how we can be more inclusive as individuals and a school community, let us join in saying our school prayer as 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 The Becket School 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!

Let us start our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

 

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!

 

A reading from the letter of St Paul to the Corinthians,

And so there is no division in the body, but all its different parts have the same concern for one another. 

If one part of the body suffers, all the other parts suffer with it; if one part is praised, all the other parts share its happiness.

All of you are Christ’s body, and each one is a part of it.

The Word of the Lord

Thanks be to God 

 

Dear Lord, 

Thank you for creating us to be unique and special.

May we treat others with respect, be a voice to the voiceless and celebrate the beauty of diversity. 

Amen

    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.

    Today we invite you to watch the video below where Fr Jonathan Cotton shares a message with us all on the topic of racism and how we can tackle racial injustice as Christians.

     

    Let’s break it down…

    Fr J’s 3 important truths and 3 important actions to stamp out racism:

    3 Truths

    1 Creator – There is one God, one Father, our creator who has created one race, the human race. We are all brothers and sisters, sharing the same human rights.

    1 Saviour – There is only one Saviour and that is Jesus Christ, the saviour of the human race. Jesus’ death and resurrection opened up a way out of sin and death for humanity showing us how much he loves us.

    1 Shared Destiny – Everyone in the human race has a shared destiny. This destiny is the happiness of heaven. There is a place in heaven for every human being.

     

    3 Actions

    Solidarity – We can and should stand alongside the victims of racism.

    Respect – We can show respect for difference and diversity.  We can be inclusive to others without losing our differences, diversity and unique identity. Celebrate diversity- it’s beautiful!

    Campaign – We can campaign to oppose racism and call for accountability for people whose wrong attitudes and wrong actions cause racism. Call for investigations when racism happens and make sure concrete changes take place so as to create equality and the unity of the human race.

     

    If we take on board these 3 truths and these 3 actions, we will help to gradually wipe out racism.

    “As far as God is concerned, each of us is an awe inspiring miracle” – Youcat.

    By learning and loving we will change the world during a time when it needs healing the most.

    Lets do our bit to stamp out racism!

     

    Dear Lord 

    We pray for all those who have died from racism and injustice. May we open our eyes to the injustice that exists in our world and may we work for justice and promote dignity.

    We pray for the power to be gentle and loving; have the strength to be forgiving; the patience to be understanding and the courage to do what is right and not what is easy.

    Amen

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

        Let us start our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

         

        As always, we take time to listen to Sunday’s Gospel. This week we are going to hear from Mr Greig…

         

        Sunday’s Gospel links well to the theme of our week: Inclusion. Just like the vineyard owner in the scripture, God’s love for us all is the same, no matter who we are. Whether we have been doing God’s work for our whole lives or whether we started doing God’s work last week- God loves us all the same.

        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.

         

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

        We hope you have a great Friday and weekend ahead 🙂
