Forgiving is Good for Your Health!

Chaplaincy Assembly Week at Oban High School has been considering the importance of Forgiveness as part of our overall well-being.
The Chaplaincy team asked pupils and staff from Oban High School's 'Clans' to consider aspects of forgiveness from the Bible and also from Desmond Tutu's experiences in pre- and post- apartheid South Africa. Most importantly, how the South African nation responded in the times after Nelson Mandela's release alongside the rapid move to democracy.
In true Tutu style, the assemblies ended with the thought that 'forgiveness is good for your health'
In closing, all gathered were invited to consider personally who they might forgive and who they might say sorry to.
