On Saturday, 14 November, Daniel Symes and I attended the Wessex Synod Youth Executive open meeting, with the theme 'Shine'. It was a super fun day full of getting to know each other, learning about Diwali, thoughts about light and dark, guided meditation and games!
It was run by the members of the WSYE, at the meeting two guests were welcomed onto the exec which was absolutely amazing! We finished the day off with a scavenger hunt, music quiz and glowsticktionary (Pictionary with glowsticks), meaning I now have a whole load of glowsticks all around the house!
The quote for the Synod day was from Harry Potter since the theme was shine and I believe it’s very apt for this time...
"Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if only you remember to turn on the light.”
