... to play football with wee ones!
We had a dull and sometimes wet day ... but that didn't dampen spirits and those who dropped in enjoyed a good yarn, a cup of tea and watching the children play. There were lots of games and prizes for everyone ... fishing for duck and fish was one of the most popular! Even the older teens enjoyed that one.
Paul provided a vast selection of old favourites as people chatted and played ... it was lovely having music in the background while folk enjoyed a cuppa.
Pentecost is almost upon us! More excitement tomorrow as the Sunday Space year ends and the young people receive their gifts. Then, a Pentecost Praise and Picnic in the Park when the three Lisburn Road churches gather for worship and fellowship. In between ... the choir lunch! A busy but exciting day!
This is Saint Barnabas' Day ... so here's the collect for today.
Bountiful God, giver of all gifts,
who poured your Spirit upon your servant Barnabas:
Help us, by his example, to be generous in all our judgments,
and unselfish in our service;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
