Spirituality at St. Peter's

Spirituality at St. Peter's

At St. Peter's spirituality is about the development of a sense of self, of soul, personality and character.

 

Our Vision and Values supports the development of spirituality as a school community and for individuals.

 

Love - The greatest gift we receive through Jesus Christ is to know that we are loved and in return can show love to others.  The caring nature of the school promotes this in our daily lives.

Our first golden rule is to care, the compassion we show towards each other develops a sense of soul.

 

Learn - Every day we learn something new about ourselves that we treasure.  Every experience, good or bad, leaves a mark and makes us unique in the eyes of God.  The wealth of opportunities for all members of the community to learn promotes the importance of self-growth.   

Our second golden rule is to share these experiences with others which develops a sense of self.

 

Live – We try to live our lives to the full every day, always trying our best, using the understanding of love and our learnt experiences to guide us.  St Peter’s provides a safe secure place for us to live, make mistakes, experiment, reflect, and find ways to make a difference to flourish in the eyes of God.

Our third golden rule is to be truthful to ourselves and others which helps us to develop our personality and character and be proud of who we are.    

How do we describe spirituality at St Peter's?

 

Christians believe that; Everyone is a valued creation, individually and uniquely made by God, in his own image.

It also refers to God as a potter and describes everyone being the work of God’s hand.
Sometimes pots can crack or break. Sometimes things happen that make us feel cracked or changed.
Christians believe that whatever happens to them in life, God is with them.
God can mend gaps and  put everyone back together.  

'We are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand'. Isaiah 64:8

Read the story of the Kintsugi story - Kintsugi is a Japanese word meaning ‘golden joinery’.  Artists use golden glue to repair cracks bringing unexpected beauty and, in some cases, allowing the light to shine through.

 

Christians believe that this unexpected beauty from repairing the cracks of life is their own unique spiritual journey which builds their relationships with others, the environment and with God.

WOWs, OWs and NOWs

WOW Moments - These are the awe and wonder moments.  The times when you want to breathe in and capture the feeling, holding onto it as long as you can. 

 

OW Moments - These are the blows life can bring.  They can knock the breath out of you.

 

NOW Moments - These are the everyday ordinary times: being able to be present in the moment, being open and receptive to life, because God is not just for emergencies!

We help each other to recognise these moments in life and to reflect on events that make us who we are. 

Everyone one will respond differently to WOW, OW and NOW moments, therefore making each crack unique to us as individuals.

 

This is how we develop our very own sense of self, soul, personality and character.

Our Own Unique Spiritual Journey.
