Amidst the uncertain and rapid changes which seem to be hourly at present, one of the shining lights has been the speed with which brilliant new faith resources for families to use at home have been developed.
Research shows the influence of family on children and young people is crucial to them developing a healthy faith. Families provide safe spaces for conversation, reflection and questions.
The challenges of social distancing and self-isolation are vast, but they also provide a good opportunity for families to explore faith in new depth together.
Such a wide array of resources means that being a church family within your own household has never been easier. You can spend a short time each day making the space to encounter God in new ways. Whether it’s a 30-day challenge, special activities during Holy Week or using ideas to spark your own, there is plenty to enable your family to keep their relationship with God top priority in these difficult times.
Some of these times together as a family may be joyful, and some may have a more sombre feel. Church Mission Society is inviting people to ‘Lament for Lent’. You can share your laments with them.
However you and your family meet with God in the next few weeks, may it be a time of hope-filled transformation.
