Bed-time, a few days ago.
We were talking about the Church. About her being the bride of Christ.
I asked if the kids knew what that meant.
Enoch said: "Yes, a pride is a group of lions!"

On reflection - he could be right.
We know that Jesus is called the Lion of Judah.
We know that we are called from darkness into light and are called to be a royal priesthood and a holy nation.
The lion has always been a royal beast (shades of Aslan come to mind).
Perhaps it would be good to think of the Church as 'a group of lions'!
