Imagining the Future...
To all those children and young people who replied so far to the challenge to imagine the future Bishop Stephen writes...
I am very grateful for all the ways in which you have responded to my questions about Imagining the Future.
I have read all of the postcards and seen all of the photos. I have also enjoyed looking at the drawings and artefacts which some of you have made and sent to me.
We have taken notice of everything you have said and we will try to put as many of your ideas into practice as we can.
Above all, I have been inspired by your desire to share the love of Jesus and to drive away the darkness and sadness of the world with hope and real care for people.
Examples of the children's repsonses will follow soon.
If your children have thoughts and ideas to share with Bishop Stephen please follow the link ...Imagine the Future
Either print the questions and post them to us or send us an email - we would love to hear from you all through 2013!
