Having a strong sense of purpose enhances wellbeing. People of all ages find purpose through serving the needs of others. Young people with a heart for service can lift their eyes from a focus on their own needs to being energised and enriched through meeting the needs of those around them.
It was heartening this week to have a number of middle and senior college students very quickly volunteer to walk the P-2 students from the Year 3-12 car park to their classrooms to assist in the changed routines around morning drop off. Each week I am amazed at the generosity of spirit that our young people possess and their readiness to get in and help others in a variety of ways. God encourages us to be people who use our gifts and talents to support others. It is a privilege to be part of a community where this is at our heart.
