Today we spent the whole day up at Rock Farm. Our lovely church helps to run and manage it. It felt pretty wondrous to be outdoors, watching the boys enjoy the space and getting to know more people from church by just hanging out together for the day.
This evening son1 and I went to our church Carol Service, I loved his enthusiasm for coming along, his hearty singing of all the songs and getting to hang out with him for some individual parent time. It was also very good to be reminded of the God who came to hang out with us, who moved into the neighbourhood and dwelt here. The idea of a God who isn’t distant and who seeks and searches us out still does something deeply wonderful deep in my inner being.
