Reflection for parents

We have been designed in God’s image to live in community with
one another, and not just the members of our own household. We have been designed in God’s image to live in community with
one another, and not just the members of our own household. This
past year has forced many of us into isolation, social distancing
and mask wearing – something that we’ve done out of love for
our neighbour but have paid a great price for. Let’s not leave this
lockdown without taking time to consider the impact that it has had
on us and our families.
Try to set aside at least 45 minutes for this; easier said than done
at the moment, but making time for reflection as we come out of
lockdown will help us to shape our lives with intention. Decide
whether you want to reflect as a family unit, with your spouse, or a
close friend if you are single parent, or on your own.
