Easter Shopping

Today, I took three of my grandchildren to buy flowers for their mother to give to her tomorrow, Easter Sunday.

While we enjoyed drinks and snacks, we talked about the meaning of Easter and holy days observed by different faiths. As we chatted I appreciated how important it is for children to be taught at school and elsewhere about religions other than their own, and to respect the ways in which people worship God. After all, as my young grandson put it, God is God even if people have different names for Him.

The three children are really happy with their choice of flowers, and are looking forward to giving them to their Mum tomorrow.
