The InstaMeet happened almost a month ago! There is much growth to report on, including: this blog will be for SPC&Y....
SPC&Y= St Peter's Children & Youth. So now the age gap includes even more: newborns through 18 year olds, and kind of the 20-40s group, as well. And how about our college kids? So birth-age 49? For now, we we focus on three age groups:
Child Care/Nursery: age infant- 4 (roughly)
Children: age 5ish-11ish
Youth: age 11ish-18ish
... the circle widens.
Right now, as I type, I am with 4 youth from the Cathedral, about 24 youth from the Diocese of SW Florida, and about 2000 Episcopal people (mostly youth) at EYE: Episcopal Youth Event. We are immersed in the love of Christ, as Bishop Curry reminded us this morning in his sermon:
If you want to change the world and change yourself: Follow Jesus. If you don't: don't worry about it.
-- Bishop Curry
Many more pictures, poems, Scripture, writing, thoughts, questions and ideas to come soon.
You may look forward to musings from Christen Crosby on EYE and a future post about the movie we watched at the InstaMeet: Ruby Bridges. Updates on the nursery, Child Care, Children in Church! and the overall growth of Children & Youth at the Cathedral, the Diocese, and the Church.
in prayer and in Christ,
