Making the Right Choices

It is not always easy to make choices about the direction of our lives. One voice may tell us to rise to the excellence and another, equally strong, may try to keep us down. The junior youth have recently been exploring the tools that help us listen to the right voice and discussed and memorised the following quote: “Noble have I created thee, yet thou hast abased thyself. Rise then unto that for which thou wast created.”

As we rise to excellence, we find many spiritual forces at our command. One of these forces is kindness and the youth discussed the effect of a simple act of kindness on them and on others. What followed was their dramatic and entertaining interpretation of the story of Androcles and the lion.

The weather was also kind to them, so there was lots and lots of basketball playing on that Sunday.

Prayers for Children

21/03/2016

Recently, the children at the Newbury’s Children Class have been studying the topic of a Prayer. They now know that it is the ‘greatest longing of every soul’ and have been doing a number of activities to reinforce the subject. The regular Children Classes are open to all children aged 5-11 and provide them with spiritual and moral education.

Children Classes

 

It is the greatest longing of every soul who is attracted to the Kingdom of God to find time to turn with entire devotion to his Beloved, so as to seek His bounty and blessing and immerse himself in the ocean of communion, entreaty and supplication

A Prayer

 

 

Intone, O My servant, the verses of God that have been received by thee,
as intoned by them who have drawn nigh unto Him, that the sweetness of thy melody may kindle thine own soul, and attract the hearts of all men

What is Religion for?

14/01/2016

If the edifice of religion shakes and totters, commotion and chaos will ensue and the order of things will be utterly upset, for in the world of mankind there are two safeguards that protect man from wrongdoing. One is the law which punishes the criminal; but the law prevents only the manifest crime and not the concealed sin; whereas the ideal safeguard, namely, the religion of God, prevents both the manifest and the concealed crime, trains man, educates morals, compels the adoption of virtues and is the all-inclusive power which guarantees the felicity of the world of mankind. But by religion is meant that which is ascertained by investigation and not that which is based on mere imitation, the foundation of divine religions and not human imitations.
