Lockdown is not lockdown

It is for humans to see God’s creation

Value and cherish and look after them as well.


Lockdown helps us to acquire new ideas

Become creative, look after our gardens, nature and help each other

Not to be selfish,

Clear our minds for us to look after the body

As a temple and the world as a whole.
