Let's not get in a tangle at GFG!

Easy to say, but not so easy to do. GFG were recently confronted by the string challenge and what a tangle there was. But that was not the end of the intertwining stuff. Some of the questions discussed by the S1 and S2 pupils recently have also created some good debate. 'Why did God create sinners?', How could Adam and Eve populate the world of 7 billion plus?' and what about those dinosaurs?
Chats have also considered how we are prone to 'judge a book by its covers' when in fact, taking time to get to know a 'book' can give us insights very different to our first impressions. All in all, a great space for young folk to consider what they do and don't believe, but crucially, to respect others' beliefs which may not be quite the same as their own.
