Yr 10 English

Hello everyone,

I’ve had a request for a copy of the speech “I Have a Dream” to be put up.

Here is the link to the site for our version:

Yr 10 CP

I know this is my ENGLISH blog but we’ve been having an interesting discussion in CP and I said I would put up a link to an apologetics blog that some might find useful.

Here it is:

http://www.thepoachedegg.net/the-poached-egg/2013/05/gods-answer-to-mans-problem-of-pain-and-suffering.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Apologetics-ThePoachedEgg+%28The+Poached+Egg+Apologetics%29

There are other recommended apologetics resources at the bottom of the page that this link opens.

Romans 8:28-39
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[i] have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

More Than Conquerors

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”[j]
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Year 11s

Good evening 🙂

Just a reminder that Mr. Graieg (Senior) will be coming in tomorrow to begin his series of lectures that contrast a Postmodern worldview with Biblical Christianity.

I encourage all of you to make every effort to be at school for this series of five lectures. I have deliberately left out Friday from the programme so that we can all hear him.

This is the beginning of our Poetry and Song Lyric unit. Congratulations on all the excellent work you all have completed so far. You are stars!

One last thing…the Great Expectations 3 part mini-series is now ready for viewing, so we can start our lunchtime sessions tomorrow if you would like. Let me know. Bring popcorn?

See you period one tomorrow.
