Introducing: Panda

I have lots of talented friends. One of those friends is a guy called Nath.

To cut a long story short, Nath is awesome at drawing. This awesomeness means that he is about to have a childrens book released. Its called “panda”. Here is the blurb from the facebook page.

“Panda is a very talented, very lonely bear in search of a place to belong. While searching for his home he comes to realise that belonging is more about finding people who truly love you than look like you.”

I’m looking forward to it coming out.

Check it out on facebook here.

Resources to use this Easter.

Easter is one of those times in the year where churches try to connect with those in their community who do not usually go to church.

In my experience, churches try to do things differently during Easter and Christmas. Sometime this involves singing different songs, having a special focus on welcoming and follow up of new people. Lots of churches try to show a video or two during the service.

If you want to do things differently, visually, he are some handy resources you can use. They are all free.
