Where have the golden days gone?The…

Sunday Kids by Zoom

It has been an interesting experience facilitating Sunday Kids on zoom. Activities and acknowledging the different contributions that children make spontaneously has been quite challenging. It was great to have parents involved last week with the group who came on from Church as they were able to help the smaller children with some of the activities. I hope the parents were able…

Life Lessons from Winnie-the-Pooh

Have a read… It got me thinking about perspective and the broad sweep of God’s plan, story and narrative (something we explored together last Saturday as the power of story and metaphor in God’s quiver of communication tools). Our society today is said to…
