“’We used to sing a song about the wise man and the rock at home in the olden days when we did pray and read the Bible together,” Neal told his kids. “It was actually nice then, but I don’t know if that would still work now with you young people once everything gets back to normal after the lockdown. At least during these months at home we did spend time together. We’ve been working on the weather project, researching changes in the weather over the last 20 years. That was very enlightening as it affected many aspects of nature too. We’ve never had a tornado here and I’m glad our house is pretty solid, but floods do still happen and we also looked into how shack dwellers have little choice in coping with the weather issues and fire is also a big hazard.
Everyone who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house upon the rock and the rains fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that house but it did not fall. Matt 7:21-29.
Pope Francis: The family continues to be the principal point of reference for young people. Children appreciate the love and care of their parents, they give importance to family bonds and they hope to succeed in forming a family when it is their time. Without doubt the increase of separation, divorce, second unions and single-parent families can cause suffering and a crisis of identity in young people. CV262,
