THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
'I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men or women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must – at that moment – become the centre of the universe.'
'Elie Wiesel (Extract from acceptance speech, receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986)'
"Christian inspiration and Christian ideals are fundamental to the Bryanston philosophy, but the school recognises that pupils may come from homes which follow other faiths or have no strong religious affiliation. The Chaplaincy is fully involved with the pastoral care of the community.
Our aim is to offer pupils a regular experience of genuine, committed Christian worship, in which all are free to join. For many, this experience remains an enduring part of their time at Bryanston."
The Rev’d Canon Andrew Haviland
