- SEMESTER 1 | TEACHING WEEK 10
I’ve been taking part in a digital conference this week on the integration of psychology and theology. One of the speakers, Robert Emmons, talked about the virtue of gratitude and how central this is to human flourishing. While he also discussed the problems of instrumentalizing this virtue (i.e. “I’m grateful so I can flourish”), it was a great reminder to me of the importance of this practice.
So here goes, I am grateful for you students and staff. These past sixteen months have been, literally, transformative for me. I have felt seen, known, loved, and carried throughout this wild ride. You have been so gracious to me and my family. I love looking around my home and seeing physical reminders of your care for us: that bed from Sandy, that washing machine from Kathryn, that vacuum cleaner from Liz, those couches from the library, and so much more.
I am so grateful to Jesus for this Carey community and I hope you are able to take a minute to reflect on what you have to be grateful for as well.

Get involved with Mission Week.Our Carey theme for the year is ‘Feast’. It’s an invitation to receive all that God gives. But the feast that God provides is not only for us, it is for all, and especially those who are in most need. So how do we share the feast with them?
How is food being shared with those who need it in your neighbourhood? Pataka kai? School breakfast clubs? Community gardens?
Post your photos, descriptions and video clips to Carey’s Facebook page or Instagram using #sharethefeastcarey and see how our community is sharing the feast.
Bring a can or packet (non-perishable item) to contribute to our kete.
We’ll fill it up over Mission Week and donate it to a local initiative.
