What's Going On?
Fostering Hope Book Club
During May, Mary Dickins of Fostering Hope is hosting a book club for anyone who is a foster/kinship carer, or interested in exploring foster care.
It takes place online at 7:30-8:30pm on Mondays, and the first one took place on Monday May 4 - but it is not too late to join!
This is for current foster and kinship carers, as well as those interested in joining the journey.
You will have the opportunity to read a set of chapters each week and submit questions or ideas you want Mary to discuss further on those chapters. Each week she will choose up to ten questions to answer.
Consider it a virtual month-long "book club" with you and others from around the country - no matter where you are on your journey!
Daily Reflections from Jenny and Stephen Baxter
Every weekday, Tas Baptists' Mission Director Stephen Baxter, and wife Jenny, reflect on the YouVersion app Bible verse of the day.
The response has been very favourable, and you can catch them on the "Daily Reflections" tab on the TasBaptists website.
