Live results of the Awesome Competition tune in at 8:45am

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?!

Wednesday/Thursday

We start with the Sign of the Cross

The Holy Spirit gives us an incredible gift. The gift of Awe and Wonder. It helps us look at something and be amazed and inspired.

Take a look at this:

It’s full of people doing awesome things (don’t try them at home by the way!) but how does seeing something awesome make us feel? Does it make us inspired to be awesome ourselves?

We are not all meant to be good at the same things and often the things you see in the video are the result of years of practice but it is awesome what a human being can achieve.

What do you think are the most awesome human achievements? What do you want to achieve?

Lord, help us recognise awesomeness in others. Amen

Scripture

NEXT STEPSWe begin with the Sign of the Cross

As you know, we are going to use the Scripture from this Sunday’s Gospel to reflect on every Friday. If you are in KS 3/4 You can use your planners to to help you understand the scripture.

This year we want to bring the Word of God to life on a Friday morning to help us reflect and understand scripture a little bit better, so with the help of our school community a different person each week will read our Gospel and share what it means to them. Use your planners to help you discuss and explore the story further.

Matthew 13: 13

The reason I use parables in talking to them is that they look, but do not see, and they listen, but do not hear or understand.

Are there things that you do not understand and cannot see? Do you have any parables to explain advice that you would give to others?

Lord, help us to listen to and follow your word. Amen.
