Easter week + 1

An up and down week – mostly down but now going up.

It was the Church AGM at the weekend and we were duty Stewards. There was some misplaced expectation that we knew all about the arrangements for the Faith Lunch and all the other things around the AGM requirements – but they were wrong. My stress levels went through the roof … and then I was asked to fill in for the church secretary and take the meeting minuets. (but I didn’t).

Stuff I’ve come across this week –

My Bible Christian Ancestors

Breaking The Cycle Of Conflict

Stigma stops people like my dad speaking out about suicidal feelings

Church to tackle bullying and harassment I have follow-up information on this last one but can’t pass it on till it’s published.

What else an I doing –
