KNOWLEDGE IS ONE THING, BUT UNLESS WE UNDERSTAND IT WE CAN’T USE IT TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE. UNDERSTANDING HELPS US TAKE OUR KNOWLEDGE AND APPLY IT TO OUR LIVES. THINK THIS WEEK ABOUT HOW YOU COULD BE MORE UNDERSTANDING. HOW COULD YOU EMPATHISE AND REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR FRIENDS ARE THINKING OR FEELING? IT OFTEN INVOLVES MAKING AN EFFORT AND REALLY LISTENING.
HOW CAN YOU BETTER UNDERSTAND THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR DECISIONS AND ACTIONS THIS WEEK?

Proverbs 2:2-5 Good News Translation (GNT)

Listen to what is wise and try to understand it. Yes, beg for knowledge; plead for insight. Look for it as hard as you would for silver or some hidden treasure. If you do, you will know what it means to fear the Lord and you will succeed in learning about God.

Being understanding of other people and their beliefs and perspectives is tough but it is something that we are called by God to do as each person is valued and created by God.

Watch this video for some top tips on how to build better relationships with others and how to be more understanding

Put your reading skills to the test and see if you can understand what is written in the paragraph below:

Understanding doesn’t mean that we have to have knowledge about everything and to have it laid out in front of us. Instead it is about being able to form a picture of what we need to know from the information we do have.

How often do you work things out from just a small amount of information?

Do you sometimes jump to conclusions or can you work things out correctly?

Do you trust your instincts?

Understanding is the next step in our faith because, guided by the Holy Spirit we can take our faith and, with the knowledge we have through the scriptures and Church teachings we can gain understanding.

Are there things that you would like to understand better? Post your ideas in the box below so we can explore these through Chaplaincy

Making Sense of it All: The New Normal

What do you want your new normal to look like? What will you change in your life as a result of recent events? Comments below 🙂

Love never fails

Even in the darkest moments, love gives hope.

Love compels us to fight against coronavirus alongside our sisters and brothers living in poverty.

Love compels us to stand together in prayer with our neighbours near and far.

Love compels us to give and act as one.

Now, it is clear that our futures are bound together more tightly than ever before.

As we pray in our individual homes – around the nation and around the world – we are united as one family.

Let us make a new normal for ourselves and those around us. Let us remember what we have learnt from this tome and make our world a better place as a result.

So, let us pause and find a moment of peace, as we lift up our hearts together in prayer

Amen

We often all understand things in different ways. In the video below children describe what they understand God to be to an illustrator, who makes their thoughts come alive! Have a think today about who you understand God to be.
