Lower School Chapel continued the Hands of God series, with students learning to be Hands of Compassion last week. So far, the Lower School has focused on being the hands of prayer, work, gratitude, healing, welcome, and now, compassion.
Head of Lower School Sarah Love asked students to use their sensory nerve receptors for the activity. Students were given a bag and asked to close their eyes to find an object that was hard, soft, squishy, etc. Similar to the activity, students can learn how to best respond to others. They heard how they can use their hands to show compassion. Students can learn to be sympathetic and thoughtful when trying to comfort others.
Love focused on I Peter 3:8, “Be united in spirit, sympathetic, filled with love for one another, compassionate, and humble.”
