Love Your Neighbour

Today our chapel focused on the fruit of the spirit that is LOVE.

 We welcomed Pastor Kevin, who re-told Robert Munsch's story Love You Forever. 

LOVE lasts forever and Jesus asks us to share our love with everyone!

Pastor Kevin helped us think of all the people we should love, 
not just our families or best friends. 

Our Grade 7 students shared a skit with us that helped us see that 
we are better when we are a part of a community. 

And we love to sing during chapel! We are still learning our Fruits of the Spirit song
but also love to sing some of our favourites. Cornerstone is one of those favourites!

Fruits of the Spirit

Our theme for this school year is Galatians 5:22,23, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against things like this."

Through our chapels, devotions and in our classroom routines this year, we hope to instill and develop in our students these fruits of the spirit.  

Today we gathered for our first chapel of the year. It was great to see everyone together again!
We are learning a new song:

We looked at what it means to love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 says, " Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

Some of our Grade 2 and 3 students reflected on what love means and shared their thoughts and visuals with us.

Two of our students shared what love really means. 
(Do you really love that banana?)

How will you show love today?
