We are having an interesting term at Emmanuel’s God Squad with quite a few young people attached but as they don’t all come on the same week, it sometimes feels like a new group every Sunday morning! We are losing our meeting room for a month now (while there is building work at the Day Centre) so we’d appreciate your prayers during that time that it wouldn’t be too disruptive. Ian, Ali, and Denise are now sharing the God Squad leadership and enjoying working together.
We have been looking at the bible book of James in God Squad, our own take of course. For example where James asks us to be patient for Jesus to return we wondered what time God's watch actually said (See James 5). While He waits for us we thought about how we should try to make the best of what we have been given, for as long or short a time as we have and how we might affect others who meet us along the way (See James 4). We made timelines with newspaper and sellotape and it was creative and messy and fun. (See the pictures to the left) For Advent God Squad is going fishing for the Real Christmas, with no doubt a few red herrings along the way.
