Safer Internet Day

Today we are supporting Safer Internet Day. Last Friday our students participated in an assembly about this and below is a lovely poem we would like to share with you.

Safer Internet Day


Creator God,
We thank you for technology.
For the brilliant minds of others,
Who have given us such advances.
The awesome power of a mobile phone.
With more computational capacity,
Than the computer that put a man on the moon.
So much good has come of this technology.
People in contact with friends and loved ones far away.
An entire library in the palm of our hands.
The sum of human knowledge in our pocket.
Lord, we also know the damage,
That this technology can cause in the wrong hands.
With those who seek to steal the identity of others,
Or lead young people in to harm,
Or who abuse others online as a kind of sport.
May we always consider thoughtfully what we say,
And what we post online.
May we always remember,
That it is a person who receives and reads our messages,
And the smallest comment or emoji,
Can hurt someone.
Help us to remember that knowledge,
Is not the same as wisdom.
And that virtual reality,
Is not a place where friendships flourish.
True friendship deepens,
In the real presence of another.
And a true friend knows that. Amen.
