I love mixing with teenagers, they have so much to teach me. In my usual way I was chatting to them the other day, going on about this and that and doing others thing at the same time. One of them looked at me and said ‘You want an A.M.O.S, D.E.A.R.

I stopped in my tracks what was an AMOS and why were they calling me DEAR? It seems that at the school they all go to, as a group activity, they have A Moment of Stillness. What a wonderful idea and what good training. That still left me to wonder about the meaning of DEAR. The answer, Drop Everything And Read. As a writer I thoroughly agree with that!

I now want a period of stillness to improve my devotions and drop everything and read the Bible. There is so much I can learn from those who are a fraction of my age.
