As our thoughts turn to Summer and holidays, I praise God for the opportunities to get out and enjoy the warmer weather. Over the next few months we have some Messy walks planned. A themed Seaside morning at Toddlers to celebrate Summer and the children leaving us to attend Primary School in September. Plus the children from the Manor will be celebrating another Infant Wedding. Messy Mice will be two years old at the beginning of June.
Lots of celebrations, and this reminds me of the excitement children bring into our lives and their energy for life. Jesus said,” Suffer the children to come unto me”, and that we cannot enter the kingdom of Heaven unless we become like a child. Mark 10 v 13-16. Let us not forget that God can touch everyone regardless of age, perhaps just stop and think for a moment about what Jesus meant about being like a child. Children trust, are faithful and loyal, loving, full of life. Are we like that with God?
As a Church, we are beginning to look at God’s plan for us for the following year. If you have any comments, good or bad, about my role and work here, please pass them to me. You never know - your ideas may be the spark needed for a new direction.
