Meditation

February4

To all our families, a big welcome back to school. Some of you may know that we started whole class meditation last year in Term 4. It is Christian meditation. We start with 3 rings of a bell. Then we meditate silently for 3 minutes, trying to  stay calm and just concentrate on our breathing. If our mind wanders to outside things we come back to the present moment by repeating a meaningful word over and over a few times. Our word is something that helps us appreciate God eg. Father, Lord, Mara-na-tha (a Christian meditation word).

We do this at least 3 times a week after lunch. Some classes do it every day. It’s a lovely way of feeling the peace and presence of God in our lives. This could also be a family bed time activity for a prayer and peaceful sleep. Why not try it, your children can lead you.

Creation

This week we have had a class Mass for Foundation students and their families. The children prayed about creation and the wonderful gifts we have in the world. They presented baskets of artwork and newly planted seeds.

Let us pray. Thank you God for the wonders in our world, like the sea, sky, clouds, water, plants and flowers, animals and humans. We Praise You Creator God and give You thanks. Amen.
