Every now and again, people ask for a lift to church. If you are able to help, please let the vicar know.


Dear pilgrim,
As you go into the wilderness of the land and of your heart -
May you experience the ever-flowing grace of God’s presence!
May you be immersed so fully in God’s love that you learn to let go and swim!
May you engage deeply and radically with the natural world, 
as steward, co-creator, and friend!
May you drink anew from the divine source, the stream of living water!
And may you be transformed, may the stagnant waters of your spirit begin to flow, 
and may all which is dead in you rise again!
God is here. The river awaits. Let the adventure begin.

(Kairos Earth)
