There’s a lot of preparation to be done before the day begins. These pictures show what greeted our friends this morning:
The writing table
Another important part of the day is the display. This reflects the day’s theme and our work is added to the display at the end of the session:
We have seen this boat before. Can you remember which month?
Are there 153 fish?
Dramatised reading – Telling the story of the miraculous catch of fish
Unfortunately, the attempt to capture the audio was a complete failure!
Work continued on the waterfall:
The bible tells us that the fishermen landed 153 fish. Nobody is certain of the significance of this number. Mathematicians know it as a ‘triangle’ number.
Each pattern has 153 dots

Related to this theme we also have a mosaic created by David New entitled “The Wind in my Sails”
This mosaic was inspired by a painting by the French artist Odilon Redon (1840 – 1916) entitled ‘The invisible Navigator,’ which I found in a book by Sister Wendy Beckett. I added the Holy Spirit Dove and the cross/star.
