Christ is like a single body, which has many parts; it is still one body, even though it is made up of different parts. In the same way, all of us, whether Jews or Gentiles, whether slaves or free, have been baptised into the one body by the same Spirit, and we have all been given the one Spirit to drink.”

1 CORINTHIANS 12:12-13

Our Word of the Week this week is

INDIVIDUALITY

Individuality is when we are true to ourselves and share our gifts and talents that are unique to us with the world. God did not make us all the same, He made us all different, yet He loves us all the same. How does that make sense? That He can love so many different people exactly the same? Well, God so loved the world that He gave His only Son to the world so that salvation can be made available to every single person. And that is why we should embrace our individuality, because God gave it to us for a certain purpose and mission.

Saint Leo the Great, Pope, Doctor

Saint Leo the Great, also known as Pope Saint Leo I, was born into a Roman aristocratic family. His response to the call of the Lord transformed him into one of the greatest popes of Christian history. In fact, he was the first pope to be given the title “the Great.” Details pertaining to Leo’s place of birth are not known, but it is believed his ancestors come from Tuscany.

MENU

Below is what we call at Christ the King our Menu. It is something we like to do at the start of the week to reflect upon our theme through the Scriptures. Treat it a bit like a meditation. Open your minds and hearts to the words on the screen and see how it can impact your life today to help us make every person feel like they are loved as an individual.

Get in a comfortable position, focus on your breathing, notice the places in your body that need to relax and look at what the Scriptures are telling you about being individual.

Form tutors – please stop the video after two minutes.
