I’ve recently been exploring the growing gap between nature and children, and the implications for our spiritual development, and that of our children. A couple of articles and some activities have come out of it so far:
Lessons from a ‘Poor old Billy tree’ – an article marking the solstice on the Mystic Christ site.
The spirituality of nature and children – an article in the diocesan newspaper.
Polly and I also bought together some nature based activities for children (and adults) aimed at nurturing a sense of awe and wonder – have a look and download them at: www.aeker.com/nature-activities/
I made a present for my family this Christmas, a photobook of the last three years or so… lots of memories and big occasions at last taken from the screen to be printed. It looks great and everyone is enjoying it.

Polly and I have been busy perfecting our new emergency cookie bags for Christmas. This year they come not just by the bag but by the jar too!
emergency cookies in a jar or bag
Inside you’ll find the ingredients and recipe to make at least twelve cookies. Depending on which one you go for you just add butter/margarine, milk and an egg (optional). Plus you get a jar or handmade fair trade bag to keep your cookies in.
For Christmas 2011 we have:
- Jar – Chocolate Chip & Cranberry Cookies
- Bag – Easy Welsh Cakes
Cost: £8 each – or 3 of any for £20
