Weekly Reflection

A Prayer For Rest

Jesus, I am tired. My mind is frazzled, my hands are full, and my emotions are reeling with all the things I have to do. Help me to come to You in the middle of the overwhelm. Remind me of Your ever-present help in my times of need. Show me how to rest in You. Reveal to me both the beauty in the work and in the rest. Calm my anxious thoughts and encourage my heart with Your nearness. Instruct me in Your ways. Bring productivity and contentment out of the peace and comfort I find. Settle me in Your truth and in Your love. Amen.

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you his peace at all times and in every situation.

~ 2 Thessalonians 3:16

Learning Resource Centre

It was pleasing to see the positive student and staff reaction to using this new resource which opened on Monday.

While the official opening will happen next year, parents/guardians may be interested in the symbolism of the sculpture at the entrance to the Learning Resource Centre.

The sculpture, created by Chris Sage, depicts the human hands holding open the Book of Wisdom.

It provides an insight to the purpose of the Learning Resource Centre as a place where people can meet and have worlds opened to them through the sharing of knowledge.

The Book of Wisdom has been used in the imagery further referencing the Bible as the constant source of our Christian Story. Books have traditionally been a source where one can gain information, get lost in the fantasy, enjoy time reflecting on stories, as well as analysing and sharing beliefs through different genres.

The Books in the sculpture outside the Learning Resource Centre are well worn and loved, referencing relationships of humans with the written word.
