“Educating students in Christian leadership for tomorrow’s generation”
Thursday, May 19, 2011
At our Gala Dinner on Saturday night, 150 people helped to raise money for King’s Kids Uganda. The guests enjoyed a sumptuous meal and wonderful entertainment, including the dazzling electric string trio ‘Maske’ and a breathtaking performance by African acrobats. During the night, guests learned that $20 would provide basic medication and malaria protection for a villager for a year - which prompted many guests to contribute to that goal. The night was held to raise money for the building of a medical centre. We who live in Australia are so blessed that it’s easy to forget the many basics of life we take for granted such as clean water, food, sanitation, access to basic preventative medicines, which are out of reach in many parts of the world. Nights like our annual Gala Dinner remind us of the extremes of our world and allow us to give something back. Thank you to all the guests who contributed to the night, the staff and parents whose work allowed the evening to happen and to those whose passion for King’s Kids Uganda will ensure that money raised and other resources will make it to where it is intended.

Early Learning Programs Master Chefs “Extraordinaire” As part of their nursery rhyme unit PK have been developing their culinary skills by making gingerbread men, assisted by Lilly’s mum. With master chef aprons to look the part they mixed and rolled the dough, then cut out their gingerbread men ready to bake. By the way the gingerbread man wasn’t eaten by the fox but by PK children!
Parenting with Power Scripture of the week: “So get rid of your feelings of hatred [anger]. Don’t just pretend to be good! Be done with dishonesty.” 1 Peter 2:1
Parenting Insight You Can Use Now One of the helpful steps in equipping children to control their anger is to recognise four causes of anger. After children have settled down and you debrief with them about their anger, talk about what’s causing it. You and your child may see patterns and then be able to head off the problem earlier next time. 1) Blocked Goals. This happens to you, as a parent, when you want to do a project in the kitchen and find that your child has left his lego blocks all over the floor. Or, your son may want to play with his train set only to find that his sister is using it. These are blocked goals. 2) Violated Rights. That’s when you, as a parent, are in the bathroom and your daughter keeps knocking on the door. You believe you have the right to go to the bathroom in peace. Your daughter may get angry because her brother came into her room and took her favourite CD. Those are violated rights. 3) Unmet Expectations. You had expected that when you got home you would be able to rest but instead you find a big mess. Or, your wife thought she would be going to the Mariott for dinner with you, but instead you chose to go to Pizza Hut. Those are unmet expectations. 4) Experiencing Unfairness. When someone takes a toy from a younger child, you may feel angry as a parent because you see unfairness. Or, your child may feel angry with his teacher because she picked someone else for a privilege he thought he deserved. Those unfair situations can provoke anger.
Strategy for the week: Whatever the situation, after a child has settled down, talk about the cause. Discuss the value of sacrificing rights, readjusting goals or expectations and handling unfairness in a godly way. By examining the causes of anger, you can help children gain greater perspective and develop longer lasting strategies for managing their emotions.

Secondary Pray for Australia The article below is written by an American. As most would know, in America now, Christian prayers cannot be said in public schools, prayers are not said at football games and on the list goes. This is very concerning for a country that was founded on strong Christian principles. At the moment in Australia we are in danger of losing the right to have Christian chaplains in state schools. Even now with chaplains in state schools, they are restricted in what they can tell students about Christ without parental consent. I pray that we will be able to defend the right to have chaplains in state schools to help students who need someone to whom they can speak, someone not perfect, but who stands for what it is to be a Christian. Read on.
Some people, it seems, get offended way too easily. I mean, isn’t that what all this prayer hullabaloo is all about -- people getting offended? Those of us in the majority are always tippy-toeing around, trying to make sure we don’t step on the toes or hurt the feelings of the humourless. And you can bet there’s a lawyer standing on every corner making sure we don’t. Take this prayer deal. It’s absolutely ridiculous. Some atheist goes to a high school football game, hears a kid say a short prayer before the game and gets offended. So he hires a lawyer and goes to court and asks somebody to pay him a whole bunch of money for all the damage done to him. Damaged for life by a 30-second prayer? Am I missing something here? I don’t believe in Santa Claus, but I’m not going to sue somebody for singing a Ho-Ho-Ho song in December. I don’t agree with Darwin, but I didn’t go out and hire a lawyer when my high school teacher taught his theory of evolution. Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not be endangered because someone says a 30-second prayer before a football game. So what’s the big deal? It’s not like somebody is up there reading the entire book of Acts. They’re just talking to a God they believe in and asking him to grant safety to the players on the field and the fans going home from the game. “But it’s a Christian prayer,” some will argue. Yes, and this is the United States of America, a country founded on Christian principles. And we are in the Bible Belt. According to our very own phone book, Christian churches outnumber all others better than 200-to-1. So what would you expect -- somebody chanting Hare Krishna? If I went to a football game in Jerusalem, I would expect to hear a Jewish prayer. If I went to a soccer game in Baghdad, I would expect to hear a Muslim prayer. If I went to a ping pong match in China, I would expect to hear someone pray to Buddha. And I wouldn’t be offended. It wouldn’t bother me one bit. When in Rome... “But what about the atheists?” is another argument. What about them? Nobody is asking them to be baptized.
We’re not going to pass the collection plate. Just humour us for 30 seconds. If that’s asking too much, bring a walkman or a pair of ear plugs. Go to the bathroom. Visit the concession stand. Call your lawyer. Unfortunately, one or two will make that call. One or two will tell thousands what they can and cannot do. I don’t think a short prayer at a football game is going to shake the world’s foundations. Nor do I believe that not praying will result in more serious injuries on the field or more fatal car crashes after the game. In fact, I’m not so sure God would even be at these games if He didn’t have to be. That’s just one of the downsides of omnipresence. If God really liked sports, the Russians would never have won a single gold medal, New York would never play in a world series and Deion Sanders’ toe would be healed by now. Christians are just sick and tired of turning the other cheek while our courts strip us of all our rights. Our parents and grandparents taught us to pray before eating, to pray before we go to sleep. Our Bible tells us just to pray without ceasing. Now a handful of people and their lawyers are telling us to cease praying. God, help us. And if that last sentence offends you -- well ... just sue me. Something To Ponder... JUST SUPPOSE that at every ball game, graduation, prom, etc., someone who has had enough of stupid, anti-historical court decisions had the guts to start reciting the Lord’s Prayer loudly, and others joined in, then more, until hundreds participated. And JUST SUPPOSE this spread all over our land until this became standard practice in hundreds of schools -- then thousands - then tens of thousands. Just what would local school boards do? Expel half the student body? What would a federal district court do? Order hundreds of nonviolent, decent minors jailed? Or thousands? Just what would the Supreme Court do about it -- issue more edicts? What if millions decided the Supreme Court was out of its league and said “So what?” (The article continues, but I have finished it at this point.) By: Nick Gholson, TIMES RECORD NEWS, Wichita Falls, Texas -- from Bill Dorman ] What can we do? Visit Scripture Union Queensland website and sign the current petition against the removal of chaplains in state schools. Pray for a favourable result to this challenge. Pray for the continuation of Christian schools. Pray for King’s as we prepare young people to become a positive Christian influence in the world. Pray for more Christians in places of influence. Happy parenting. And so it is. Maintain good relationships. Bring heaven to earth. Fear prevents, faith prevails. God bless. True meaning of Easter. Celebrate the risen Christ. Happy Mother’s Day to all our mums. Find the joy. Defend the Australian way of life. ~ Rhonda Bevan, Head of Secondary Thursday, May 19, 2011 - Page 3

Reach Out In Faith Quote from “Walk in Faith” by Ray McCauley And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet, and begged Him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.” Mark 5:22-23 The laying on of hands is a doctrine of Jesus and the church (Heb 6:2). This man’s faith began where the will of God was known and he knew that God’s will was for his precious daughter to be healed. In Acts 10:38 we read how Jesus was anointed with the Holy Ghost and with power and went about doing good. Jesus’ reputation preceded Him. For example, blind Bartimaeus had heard about Jesus. We continually read of the healings that took place as Jesus ministered, but there is not one account in scripture where Jesus ever refused to heal a person when He was asked to help, or when the person reached out in faith and did not receive. The success or blessing of any church should be that any person, having a need, can come and find Jesus and He will fill that need. That is the key to the ministry of Jesus. People never left His presence in the same condition in which they had arrived. Reach out to others in the power and the love of Jesus.
