Very interesting talk in small group on Chinese religion and culture. Lots I didn’t know. Duty and devotion to parents is one of the strongest held Chinese cultural values, followed by a kind of pragmatism that values things which work, such as success. When you present the Gospel to an ethnic Chinese person, a frequent early question will be, “What can it do for me?” though this might be put in code.
.Zoe has been going from one sleepover to another ever since her GCSEs and wonders if she’s “broken” Hmm…Today,the sweet sounds of Midsummer Night’s Dream and Romeo and Juliet are filling the house as both girls have their Trinity Guildhall Speech and Drama exams tomorrow. Can’t wait to see their performances.
A nice, though very warm day. Enjoyed Blenheim Palace Gardens with the girls. Zoe’s back from her Lake District trip with friends, and it’s been the first time since those GCSEs started that we’ve been able to go out and relax as a family. The Secret Garden is Blenheim is looking lovely, though the hostas are a bit slug-eaten. C’est la vie!
