Thought for the day 21 November

21 November World Hello Day

No I hadn’t heard of it either, but it’s the 48th. It started after the Yom Kippur War in 1973, with the objective of promoting conversation to resolve differences. The idea is that you say ‘Hello’ to 10 different people today – and preferably have a conversation with each one. Given the weather and Tier 4 there may not be much opportunity to greet people outside, but what about phoning someone, or using some other electronic ‘speaking’ means of communication (so texts and e-mails don’t count)? If you don’t think you can do it all in one day, set yourself a target for the week ahead


Lord, you have always encouraged conversation and communication. Help us to speak, help us to listen, and help us to use discussion as a way of resolving conflicts (instead of letting them just go on and get worse)


PS Last day of the Three Lochs Tour today. Next week we head East into the Kingdom of Fife to explore St Andrew’s
