It was great to be back together as a team this week after a refreshing Christmas break! We have spent time planning and preparing for upcoming activities. Phil and Sarah have been spending time with the new Walk Through presenters and working with them in preparation for Old Testament mini courses this term. Next week we will be leading courses at Beechwood, La Houguette and Forest with more requests coming in…. including lots of bookings for the NT Mini courses in the summer term.
This week we taught 2 of 4 sessions on the Christian views on War at La Mare High School with year 9 students. A very relevant topic given the current news reports! This lesson is always a challenge as we discuss questions like: ‘Can violence ever be good?’ and ‘What makes a war ‘just’?’ We discuss the importance of having peace and justice alongside maintaining the sanctity of human life.
A highlight for the team every year is working at Le Murier School with a group of students to help them receive a unit for their ASDAN qualification. This week we had our first session where we introduced the story of Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat. Over the next 5 weeks we will work with the students to put together an assembly based on the story of Joseph which they will then perform to the lower school.
It was also great to be able to speak at Cobo Mission on Thursday evening and to meet such an enthusiastic and prayerful group of supporters. Thank you for inviting us and for all your support.
