Enabling mission and Christian living
It’s been exam time again, with SAT’s, GCSE’s and A levels dominating the lives of many young people, and their parents. The three R’s have been thrown to the wind as pupils and students around the country wrack their brains to recall what they should have heard in the class room.
An 11year old’s’ science paper included, “To collect fumes of Sulphur, hold down a deacon over a flame in a test tube”
Another declared that H2O is hot water, and CO2 is cold water”
Moving to religion, one stated that “The greatest miracle in the Bible is when Joshua told his son to stand still and he obeyed him”
Anyone with young children will understand the miracle perceived there!
I also liked, “The first commandment was when Eve told Adam to eat the apple.”
Last year SEBA was dominated, not by exams, but by the losses of Brian and David for whose lives we are so grateful to God. We thank God for the appointment of Malcolm Browning as the new Treasurer and for the wonderful assistance that Jean Valentine has given. We continue to seek the appointment of a new Company Secretary.
So now we want to get back to concentrating on mission, pioneering projects and church planting. There are some wonderful and creative things being explored and now is a good time to say THANK YOU for all your contributions to Home Mission which make this possible, and to ask for prayer for wisdom and discernment as we look forward.
Now that the exam time is over, may children, young people and parents alike enjoy a refreshing summer. Anyone for cricket?
