Close to God

Friday 20th May 2016
In assembly I asked the children (aged about five to nine) when they felt close to God.  (I didn't try to explain what this might mean.)  The spontaneous answers included:
When I'm in bed   (cosy; safe and protected)
Outside (beauty and liveliness)
In church (because God knows that I'm there)
When I'm upset  (God understands)
On a particular cushion at home (feeling secure)
     In inspiring or peaceful surroundings we have a sense that things are right.
