THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER

This week we reflect on another experience of the risen Christ: this time Jesus walks the road alongside his companions on the road to Emmaus together they openly share their sadness & their disappointments and Jesus slowly opens their minds and hearts so that, by the time they reach their destination, their eyes too can be opened to see Christ in their midst.

This week then is time to ponder our own journeys, those we accompany in their times of sadness and confusion and those who accompany us, and to seek to open our minds, hearts and eyes to the surprising, unexpected presence of God alongside us.

 

PRAM SERVICE for our youngest members and their families

 

NO SOCKS ALLOWED

 

This week we are journeying on the road to Emmaus by foot.   So we need you to break out your feet and set your toes free.

We will make a path of our footprints.  Please have plenty of paper, some paint, something to wash the paint off and your lovely bare feet.

AND BREATHE

 

Stress and anxiety affect all of us at times making it hard to think let alone pray.  Silent meditation focused on the breath is practiced by all the world religions.  Each Wednesday evening our online Meditation service will offer simple instruction and a time to be still together.  

 

Meditation will be lead alternately by June (who is an experienced meditation teacher) and Mother Ruth (who is a novice).  On different weeks we will look at listening meditations, loving-kindness meditation, breath meditation and visualization meditation.
