Core Values

Our Core Value for this term is FORGIVENESS – we shine when we show forgiveness. Imagine for a moment a life without forgiveness. Life would be utterly impossible if during the course of a lifetime we became increasingly crushed by the weight of past sins, offences, slights. It would be even harder, perhaps, to live in a state of unforgiving. Imagine never being able to forgive someone who had ever hurt you, having a memory of every injury and that memory coming between you and those around you, never to be laid to rest. Human relationships depend on mutual forgiveness, on releasing and being released from things that could otherwise hold us bound.

 

Our acts of worship will help the children to understand that one of the greatest gifts we have is the gift of forgiveness and that when we forgive we should not hold a grudge. This allows us to let go of negative feelings and therefore leave the past behind us so that we can enjoy the present. When we forgive someone who has wronged us we show them compassion. There are also times when we do wrong things and need to ask others for forgiveness.
