So I still have no answers as to how to help my children feel comfortable, welcome and fed within the church family for whom I work, however we did this Sunday have a lovely time of Church at Home again.
We all sat around the dining table before lunch, all with our favourite Bibles in front of us. We took time to worship God taking it in turns going round and round to see how many thank you's and amazement's we could say to God. We then all read something we wanted to read from our Bibles. We then talked a bit about confirmation and children taking communion, both things I am presently working on in my job. The conversations that followed were deep and honest. Instead of praying out loud at the end at my daughters request we just had a moment of quiet to say prayers in our hearts.
It was one of the most beautiful and moving 'church' experiences I have had in a long while and I know God was with us.
