It’s one week till Christmas!!
In today’s Advent Challenge we met Simeon and Anna – two older, wiser members of the temple in Jerusalem. The challenges today all looked at how we can connect with people from another generation:
Challenge 1 – Write to someone younger than you to encourage them
Challenge 2 – Speak to someone in your church about ‘adopting’ a care home
Challenge 3 – Seek advice from an older, wiser friend
I have a little friend called Squeak who I love to encourage and celebrate. However, as we know, I cannot write – so instead we just had a lovely chat. Squeak starts penguin school soon and has ben getting quite nervous about it recently because he’ll have to do work and meet lots of new people.
I encouraged him, telling him that I was nervous too when I first started but that the nerves soon disappear when you make friends and start learning loads of cool new things! I also told him that God would be there with him and helping him if he gets scared!
