Children's Synod - Synod Meeting 19th March 2016
Children and young people of the URC's Eastern Synod recently enjoyed the opportunity to meet together alongside the Synod's Spring meeting for the first time. Taking the theme of 'Dream', participants considered their dreams for children in the world today using the book 'God's Dream', written by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, to them unpack the theme further. 'We speak different languages; have different customs and think in different ways. Yet we are all God's children, and God dreams that, like any family, we will learn to love each other and to live in peace together.' This theme came about due to a resolution which the Synod passed at its previous meeting concerning the plight of refugees and offering support to some of the projects designed to help their situation.
