It's been a great start to the new term. The first message for the first week or so was letting go of the past and pressing on to what lies ahead which included memory games and a quiz. Also included was my last reference to the Olympic games using the concept of pressing towards the goal - noting how sprinters don't have time to see what the others are doing but they are so focussed on their goal ... but now it is high time we let go of the Olympics and move on!
Georgio Papadopolous has arrived in Canna in Galilee to set up his own restaurant. All has been going well - today is his big day - a wedding feast which means alot of custom and if all goes well potential future big business.... but ALL IS NOT GOING WELL!
Well I have been busy with the new term. My summer activity with St Marks Church was great. Mike Leigh et moi did some filming - the Potty Professors to be exact. Our theme with the children was Creation as we went through the 7 days (in 5 days). The children enjoyed crafts from paper mache globes to homemade bird feeding boxes. About 45 junior school children attended each day - well done Mike, Alison and the team!
The Autumn term has now started my first theme has been 'The Golden Rule'. My studies indicate that all the major religions and many others support what has been summed up as this 'Golden rule'. One of the modern attempts at a synthesis on this basis is Karen Armstrong with her Charter for Compassion. ....
