Showing Gods Love and Embracing Diversity
So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well. You need to use your head and test your feelings so that your love is sincere and intelligent, not sentimental gush. Live a lover’s life, circumspect and exemplary, a life Jesus will be proud of: bountiful in fruits from the soul, making Jesus Christ attractive to all, getting everyone involved in the glory and praise of God.
This past month I had the pleasure in leading a lesson during Wednesday chapel over the second attribute of a Trinity graduate; embracing diversity. Our focus is not on us but on the people around us and how we as a school body can be open to embracing others differences. Just like the verses stated above; here at Trinity, the staff, faculty, and Father Kevin want those things for each and every one of the students here at TST and our community. You might not realize but you are embracing diversity each time you step foot onto this campus. Many of us come from different backgrounds, family units, have different religious views, and see the world in different ways and we bring all these parts of who we are into the Trinity family. As young as two years old the teachers here at Trinity are teaching students to be loving, kind, compassionate, and open to others differences. We do this through stories, playtime, and talking about what makes each of us special. Even our older students; when they volunteer their time out in the community or going on a class field trip, they open themselves up to this diverse world we all live in and we all can be a loving light into. With a kind word we can move mountains and an open heart we become more knowledgeable and can discern what is best and pure.
If you remember nothing else, remember this…..
- You are at a school that loves and accepts you for you!!
- You are absolutely perfect!!
I am blessed beyond measure to be a part of a family and school community that loves me for me.
