Chaplains Corner“The King will say, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father!Come and possess the kingdom... I tell you, whenever you didthis for one of the least important of these brothers andsisters of mine, you did it for me!”- Matthew 25: 34 & 40This passage is the only eschatological narrative inMatthew’s gospel. The story describes people beingseparated just as a shepherd separates his sheep fromhis goats at the end of a day. Those people representedby the sheep are then welcomed into the Kingdom ofGod on account of their acts of compassion andgenerosity;“I was hungry and you fed me, thirsty and you gave medrink; I was a stranger and you received me in your homes, naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you tookcare of me, in prison and you visited me.” (v.35-36)The truest expression of faith in Christ is found through acts of generosity and compassion and astriving for justice. According to Matthew, this is paramount to our entering the Kingdom.Christmas provides the perfect opportunity to bear witness to our Christian identity and to please ‘theKing’. We may not encounter people who are hungry (please not those who are naked!), but there aremany who are in need of knowing they are loved, appreciated and honoured.Our students are being encouraged to do just that over the last couple of weeks of term. Wontama is aUnitingCare Aged Nursing Home in Orange. It has about 150 residents, some of whom are ‘forgotten’people. This year our students are invited to respond to the Gospel by contributing to the purchase ofa gift for each resident of Wontama. These gifts will be delivered by students on 1 st December.If you can think of someone who warrants or needs a tangible sign that they are noticed or rememberor simply not forgotten, consider the option of a random act of kindness.125 years MemorabiliaThis may be your lastchance for 2011 to secure acopy of the ‘Whole SchoolPhoto’ taken earlier in theyear.
