Blog: A small angel above my head

Vieraskieliset / In-english7.8.2020 6.35

We adults were a bit em­bar­ras­sed and al­so loo­ked out of the win­dow. We saw neit­her an an­gel, nor any ot­her flying cre­a­tu­re. We were won­de­ring if the child re­al­ly saw an an­gel or just a bird.

I go jog­ging five ti­mes a week for about three qu­ar­ters of an hour at a time. I do stretc­hing and ot­her exer­ci­ses at home. I go swim­ming with my wife.

I’m sure this will be OK. We will just do one month of dis­tan­ce schoo­ling at home. No-one will need to re­pe­at a grade, no-one will be se­ri­ous­ly left be­hind in such a short time. Very good that none of our kids have any need for spe­ci­al sup­port, and I on­ly have five kids to keep an eye on. Some ot­hers will have a lot more to do.

Du­ring the ex­cep­ti­o­nal spring of il­l­ness and lock­down, many pe­op­le dis­co­ve­red the rec­re­a­ti­o­nal va­lue of na­tu­re. When you feel ut­ter­ly ex­haus­ted, you can find rest and pe­a­ce in the fo­rest. I hope that, du­ring the co­ro­na­vi­rus pan­de­mic, we le­arnt to re­gard na­tu­re as a sig­ni­fi­cant sour­ce of wel­l­being and to choo­se a more en­vi­ron­men­tal­ly-friend­ly way of life.

I start wri­ting this blog post half­way through the Epip­ha­ny ser­vi­ces of Hel­sin­ki rau­ha­nyh­dis­tys. There was a dis­cus­si­on that made me want to write.

When I vi­si­ted the Pa­ris Dis­ney­land in 1998, I went on a rol­ler co­as­ter ride that pas­sed at high speed through a dark buil­ding with pla­nets all around.

Few to­pics rai­se such strong emo­ti­ons in the Con­ser­va­ti­ve La­es­ta­di­an com­mu­ni­ty as do the ca­re­ta­king mee­tings. All those who grew up wit­hin this com­mu­ni­ty have he­ard the word – and I dare to say that most have he­ard it in a ne­ga­ti­ve sen­se. How many of them, ho­we­ver, re­al­ly know what this exp­res­si­on me­ans? Do you know, for ins­tan­ce, why the ca­re­ta­king prac­ti­ce star­ted? I did not know be­fo­re the sum­mer of 2017, when I was ab­le to dis­cuss this to­pic with pe­op­le who had per­so­nal ex­pe­rien­ce of them.

Conf­licts so­me­ti­mes oc­cur in fa­mi­ly life. They do oc­cur even when we love each ot­her. Even when I would like to be good and lo­ving to­ward the ot­her per­son.

My dear godc­hild, I de­ci­ded to write you a let­ter. I have been plan­ning to write this let­ter for some time al­re­a­dy. I would like to re­mem­ber each of my godc­hild­ren like this. I was promp­ted to write a let­ter when I read an ar­tic­le about god­pa­rent­hood in a ma­ga­zi­ne.

The sun is shi­ning bright­ly and the glit­te­ring la­yer of fresh, white snow daz­z­les my ey­es. Yet, on­ly a mo­ment la­ter it seems like so­me­o­ne has switc­hed off the light. Eve­ryt­hing looks grey, and the air is full of snowf­la­kes whir­led about by wind.
