Working on...

...some research on catchetical materials. One "Childen's Liturgy" resource book is bad to the point of dark comedy.

There is an obsession with  cutting and sticking and getting children to put glitter on to the cardboard tubes from the centres of lavatory rolls, and so on. This sort of thing, if it teaches children anything, teaches them about cutting and sticking and glitter.

On the other hand, I came across some children's work which involved them learning some basics about Lent and Easter: "Lent is a time for...
Loving God more,
 saying sorry,
finding hope and forgiveness,
cleaning up our lives,
making new beginnings." Which seemed a good summary and worth learning.
