The return of Herman
Young people are great. In my last job, a young person gave me a German friendship cake called Herman. I fed him and stirred him for ten days as instructed and then shared him out, mostly passing him on to friends at the peoples garden. R and I enjoyed eating our Herman cake too.
Well lo and behold he (or perhaps his cousin) has returned:
I’m now in a new youth work job, working for a Baptist church (yes, amazingly, just one church) and I have been visiting all the groups they run, both for young people and a variety of others. But it was at an evening group for the young end of primary school that Herman reappeared. A boy had brought three lots of him in for the leaders and I ended going home with one.
So I shall grow him again and give him to more young people 🙂
