Week Beginning: 14 September 2020, This week's theme: An Olavian is Respectful
Show proper respect to everyone: Love the believers, fear God, honour the king. 1 Peter 2:17
List some people who you respect. What makes you want to respect them? Is it easy to respect everyone? Why/why not? How would you define respect?
Let every person respect the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been established by God. Romans 13:1
Do you have respect for government and authorities? If not why not? What would make the giving of that respect easier?
What changes might you need to make to allow others to respect you?

Prayers and resources booklet for this difficult time and a message from Julie Bowen, School Chaplain
Please take care of yourselves and your families, keep an eye out for neighbours and as we are unable to visit the phone is a valuable tool for contact especially with the elderly.
The following is an old Irish blessing which I am praying for you all at this time:
Love and blessings to you all,
May the road rise up to meet you.
O gracious and Holy Father,
Give us wisdom to perceive you,
Diligence to seek you,
Patience to wait for you.
Eyes to behold you.
A heart to meditate on you,
And a life to proclaim you.
Through the power of the Spirit
Of Jesus Christ our Lord,
