A Candlemass Simeon Moment
When it was all over I needed to loosen up so I thought I'd teach some of the children the Butterfly Song with actions. It was fun!
It was only afterwards, when I reflected about it, I realised I had recreated the Simeon in the Temple thing engaging with and rejoicing in and with a new generation of the Servants of God who were going to make a difference.
Me? I'm a white beard but still a child of God, not quite ready for my Nunc Dimitis, and trusting in the next generation to take things forward. What a lucky old man I am - "And I just thank you father for making me me!"
