Term 3, Week 8: Chaplain’s Corner

As the year progresses and we get to know the students better, we find they are opening up and beginning to ask us some really thoughtful and sometimes challenging questions. We attempted to address some of these in our very first Prescott Chapel “Q&A” this past Thursday morning.

We had a panel of Dr John Lewis, our senior religion teacher; Miss Krissie Hopkins, our junior Biblical studies teacher; Mr Carlos Vera, our HPE teacher and a theology student in a past life; and Pr Ali as College Chaplain. Pr Leighton acted as moderator.

Although we don’t always have clear cut answers, and sometimes we don’t all agree, it is very important for us to delve into some of the more difficult questions students have
for God and the Christian church. We need to roll up our sleeves and enter the discussion with our young people and work alongside them so they know there is always a safe place to ask questions.
