Christian Value – Compassion

We think of neighbours as the people who live next door to us, but they could also be the people we meet, sit next to, or even the people we pass in the street going about our daily lives. We all have neighbours. Many of us live in areas where houses are grouped together, but this does not automatically mean that we always know our neighbours. This in turn means that we might not be there to help our neighbours in times of need.

In the Bible Jesus tells us to, ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ He shows us how to do this through the story of the Good Samaritan – the only passer by that showed compassion to a man that had been attacked. He bandaged him and cleaned his wounds. He then put him on the back of his donkey and took him to an innkeeper, whom he paid to look after him. Jesus urges us to be like the Good Samaritan, helping others in times of need. We must therefore keep our eyes and ears open and take the time to get to know others, not for the reward it might bring but because we know that we are doing the right thing.

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

John 15:12

Wellbeing Tip of the Week: Spend time in nature

Try to spend some time outdoors

Spending time in nature outdoors can help improve your mood and reduce feelings of stress and anger. Green spaces or bringing nature into your everyday life can benefit both your mental and physical wellbeing. For example, doing things like growing food or flowers, exercising outdoors or being around animals can have lots of positive effects. 

Bring nature indoors

This can give you the benefits of nature without having to go to a park or public garden. You could buy flowers, potted plants or seeds for growing on your window sill. Or you could collect natural materials from outdoors, such as leaves, flowers or feathers, and use them to decorate your living space.

Spend time with animals

Lots of people find that being with animals is calming and enjoyable. You could try pet-sitting or dog walking, feed birds from your window, or visit a local community farm.

Try a mindfulness exercise in nature

Pay attention to your surroundings and find things to see, hear, taste, smell and touch. If you are starting to feel stressed, overwhelmed or panicked, connecting with your five senses can help to ground yourself in the present moment.
