There’s a group of adults who meet regularly at the St Thomas Centre on a Monday morning. The session is known as ‘Monday Magic’. Jon had the pleasure of working with them again early this week.

The group is made up of individuals from a range of cultures and different backgrounds, lots of stories and anecdotes are shared. Apparently, in India the child is sometimes compared to ‘the clay’, and the parents are ‘the potters’. Parenting is all about carefully ‘shaping’ the clay and allowing the pot to ‘grow’ and develop form, so eventually hands can be withdrawn and the elegant vessel can stand alone…nice metaphor!
