Home schooling must be a nightmare for some families!  Thank goodness I am beyond that.  Socializing our children was bad enough. I can’t imagine trying to teach them physics!  ‘A prophet is not without honour, except in his own country’. There are many things that we cannot give our own family – surgery, dental care perhaps – but teaching is often one of them. Formal teaching anyway. It is a great skill. At the start of the lockdown, Professor Brian Cox remarked about the impossibility of home-schooling his own children.


Yet the actions of parents in supporting their children’s education is so important. It adds to the work of the authorized teacher. Those small acts like providing breakfast at the right time, supplying paper, a laptop, encouragement after an hour’s work around the kitchen table.  These all add to the work of the teacher.


And so, do those who support the life of faith. It is an extension of God’s work in growing the kingdom here on earth. There is a significant level of commitment involved in brass cleaning, mowing the churchyard, welcoming back the worshipper.  It encourages those who identify closely with the work of Christ and should not be overlooked. Who knows how God works through these simple tasks? I for one find massive encouragement therein.
