Recently, BFTF happened to be at the St. Ann with Emmanuel Church in St.Anns with the 92nd Scout Group (and the 4th Scout Group. The Scouts were acting out and discussing various Christian parables to try and tease out the moral message that lay behind them.
Wile this was going on, BFTF had a look around and was entranced by the "Aspiration Wall" on which children had placed paper "bricks" with a note about their aspirations (either for themselves or for others). Some of the notes were very touching and, with the Church's permission, are shown below..
