From government edicts that disrupt our lives to a baby born in a period of instability – Rachel Turner, Parenting for Faith pioneer, gives us plenty of food for thought as she draws parallels between our recent experience and those of Mary and Joseph around the birth of Jesus.
Plus she tackles the real-life concerns of a parent unsure how to encourage her teenager’s faith when they’re missing those special, inspiring events with their peers.
All this and more is delivered in Rachel’s inimitable, down-to-earth style in episode #91 of the Parenting for Faith podcast.
And while we’re talking Christmas – what’s your favourite carol? Catch up with last year’s Christmas podcast in which Rachel reflects on what families can learn from the popular Christmas song ‘Mary do you know?’ – plus how to handle Christmas lists.
