Just back from a school mission at St Joseph's Workington. Over the years we have been building up a good relationship with St Joseph's and we were delighted to see young people who we had met through the induction days or through the Follow youth group. On this occasion, we worked with Year 9 and Year 10, exploring issues of identity, what makes us who we are. Identity is not just about the things we like and who we hang around with, but who we are. So often we present different faces to different people, and it can be hard to know who we are. But in coming to know Christ, we begin to know who we are, for it was through him that we were made. As St John Paul II said, 'We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures, but the sum of the Father's love for us, and our capacity to become the image of his Son'. Tilly and Lauren shared how they their encounter with the Lord had enabled them to bring their life into focus. The young people watched drama, media presentations, and heard music that the team had composed, and had time to reflect upon their own lives, and to pray. The team enjoyed a well-earned afternoon tea afterwards. How civilised is this...
