We spend some time thinking about the special and unique role that we are called into in creating a community that inspires our children and young people as they grow in life and faith.
One of my favourite church celebrations are dedications - because they capture one of the powerful roles that we as the church community, whanau are called upon and privileged to provide. And I want to ground this understanding this morning out of the book of Luke. These few verses capture the first 30 years of Jesus' life, it's only 12 verses - yet within them we find the role of the nuclear family, the extended family, friends & the church community displayed.
