Say Hello

On Sunday we said goodbye to Say “Hello!” until we probably do it all again at Stoke URC in the first week of August. We had great fun, our 9 children were a bit swamped by our 19 leaders but it meant that they had lots of help and attention and our leaders ranging in age from 13 to 70 something learnt that they can work with children, lead games, create music and big art.

We began with Moses, approaching the burning bush, learning what it can mean when God says “Hello!” We listened to Jesus teaching his disciples how to pray and we prayed with them, “Our Father in heaven ….” and we asked the question, “Who is my neighbour?” with a couple of dramatic retellings of the Samaritan story before serving coffee and cakes to parents and friends.
