It is that time again, the end of another Trimester. Congratulations to all our students who have tried hard, done the best they could, sometimes under difficult circumstances. It is soon to be a time of well earned rest.

In a recent course Rest was discussed and analysed from various perspectives. Rest, it seems simple enough, yet from the research people seem to have less and less opportunity or desire to rest as the pressures of a fast paced, have all, society presents itself in a variety of ways to interrupt the rest necessary to sustain us in our work and study.

Genesis 2 (NIV) “2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

Why would the God who created the universe and who roams throughout his creation need to rest? Because it is all part of the plan. We are made in his image therefore if it is good enough for him then it should be good for us.

So to all our students, have a well earned break and we look forward to catching up with you in the new year.
