The Most Inspiring Story - 05 December 2016

Our year has focussed on inspiring stories so it is fitting that it should conclude with the most inspiring story of all – the story of God becoming human in the form of a defenceless child.


The joy of Christmas, in the gathering of friends and families, the buying and receiving of presents, the decorations and the carols, reminds us of just how special this event was in the history of humanity and should inspire in us a desire to spread peace and happiness to others. Three events in the last week of school showed this desire is well and truly alive at LHC.


On Tuesday 22 November, a hardy group of singers travelled down to Regis Aged Care in Bulimba to sing Christmas carols and enjoy a conversation with the residents there. Reindeer ears, triangles and maracas all helped with the mood. The smile on each resident’s face was reward indeed and told its own inspiring story.


The whole College community has also been involved with the Vinnies Christmas Appeal with lots of presents brought in for our neighbours in need. Year 10 and 11 students will join staff and Vinnies volunteers during the holidays to pack and deliver hampers. This is another inspiring story.


Our final liturgy on Friday 25 November (pictured below) was a Christmas celebration and retold the inspiring story of the birth of Jesus. The new Student Mission Team had their first outing and brought great joy with their presentation of “A Christmas to Believe In”. The focus was on the power of faith and the inspiration this story gives to make the Kingdom of God a reality on earth. One definite highlight was the staff choir’s rendition of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” – though I don’t know what it inspired (other than laughter)!


May this Christmas be a time of peace and joy for you and for all those you love. May you be inspired to share the Good News of God’s love with all.
