What does it mean to be happy… truly happy? Jesus talked about happiness, and demonstrated it too.
Spin-offs Assemblies Spring 2017 Introduction: In the Sermon on the mount, Jesus speaks about many things, including a set of phrases that have become known as ‘The Beatitudes’. They are about the ‘attitudes’ that Jesus would like us to ‘be’ or have. Each one talks about ways that we can be blessed or happy, so we are calling them ‘The Happiness Ideas’. What was Jesus trying to teach us from the Beatitudes? When did he demonstrate these things? How can we show these things today? We are also keen to address the fundamental British values where appropriate because an assembly from Spinnaker should always be useful to the school, as well as speaking into the hearts of children and staff.
