"Small paper lanterns lighting the way" - A line from worship this morning that has accompanied me throughout the day.
The National Youth Assembly programme has involved exploration of the church past, present and future - all accompanied by liturgical actions every time John Knox, the Bible, Baptism and Moderator was mentioned - just to keep folk awake!
We've also explored Ecumenical Relations and, in particular, how young folk in other denominations are involved in decision making processes within their different settings.
It is encouraging to witness the enthusiasm and passion of young people to commit to the future of the Kirk particularly when they have a deep awareness of its flaws.
Small paper lanterns indeed, fuelled by Gods spirit providing bright intervals in the midst of all the predicted gloom.
