It’s our last week of term already and as we head toward the end of the academic year it’s a great time to look at what we’ve accomplished. It’s also a great time to look forward to the last half term of the year and all the exciting events we have in store.

Hundreds of students across the school have made a brilliant start to their exams and hundreds more are getting ready in their primary schools to make the transition up to Becket. We’ve had some amazing efforts from all the houses earning house points and of course we’ve got sports day coming up to finish off the House Competition for another year.

Trinity is this week’s ‘Word of the Week’ and it is of course, because this Sunday was Trinity Sunday. It’s the Sunday where we explore one of the central mysteries in our church – that God is three persons (The Father the Son and the Holy Spirit) but still one God. 1+1+1=1! It’s easy to see how that might be confusing!

We understand God in three different ways because that’s how he’s been revealed to us. We know that each one is God because only God can do the things that each person does. What is tricky to understand is how they can still be one person! What this mystery forces to explore is actually all about relationships. How do the three persons of God reveal themselves in our lives looks and what the different ways we can relate to him? When we look at the wonder of creation we can relate to God the Father, when we ask for forgiveness we can relate to Jesus dying on the cross and when we are inspired and guided by our conscience we can relate to the Holy Spirit at work in our lives.

Think this week about the different ways that you encounter God and how he reveals himself in your life!

Trinity is about relationships. It’s about how we show God to other people and how we can start to try and understand just what God is all about.

In pairs decide between you who the three most important relationships are in your life – and why that is.

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.

Jesus Heals a Centurion’s Servant

After he had finished all his sayings in the hearing of the people, he entered Capernaum. Now a centurion had a servant who was sick and at the point of death, who was highly valued by him. When the centurion heard about Jesus, he sent to him elders of the Jews, asking him to come and heal his servant. And when they came to Jesus, they pleaded with him earnestly, saying, “He is worthy to have you do this for him, for he loves our nation, and he is the one who built us our synagogue.” And Jesus went with them. When he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to him, “Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof. Therefore I did not presume to come to you. But say the word, and let my servant be healed. For I too am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me: and I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and turning to the crowd that followed him, said, “I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.” And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the servant well.

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