Went for a walk today up to Es Vedra, I didn't climb up to the watch tower but Tracy and the boys did, I sat a little further down and had a good prayer time. This place has lifted my spirits, I feel a bit more in tune with life again.
What was it? Why did I get so down? I think probably all the things I listed before, but now I feel a bit more on top of things. This is where we are meant to be and this is what we are meant to be doing.
I am looking forward to this new season, Ben and Becky Edmonds from England should arrive in about a week to join our community and also Helen Gross from Germany. So our community will grow. We are probably going to start some form of gathering very soon, once a week. A creative reflective space that gives people an opportunity to connect with the divine. It's a tricky one because right now in our minds we are probably defining it more by what we don't want to do than what we do want to do!
So it's time to dream and paint a new picture. All the time remembering that the gathering isn't church.
I once heard someone say that we have got used to saying church is not the building but we still say church is the meeting.
Meetings are important but they are not church.
