Advent/Christmas Liturgies – Just Be!
This year’s Advent Liturgy focused on what it means to BE Christian, giving our students the opportunity to reflect on how all people may achieve this – through their thoughts, words, and actions.
Socrates, the Greek Philosopher, stated that “To BE is to DO”.
Sartres, the 20th Century Philosopher, built upon the idea set by Socrates, and stated “To DO is to BE”.
Therefore, by following the example set by Jesus, and acting in a loving way towards others, DOing loving and caring things, we too can BE Christian.
The final and underlying message within the Liturgy was to remind students that, through living out the ethos and mission of our school, “To Give Back”, striving to be the best version of ourselves, we can all make our lives, and the lives of those around us better – JUST BE!
