1. Semi-Programmed Meeting (6PM very Tuesday)
This week, on Tuesday 4th May, Geoffrey Durham will lead with the following reading;
Blessing is a very concrete reality. The word ‘blessing’ is related in English to the word ‘blood’. Blessing is like the spiritual bloodstream that flows through the universe. When we bless something we are returning what we have received to its source. We know we receive life and breath from a source which is beyond us. We haven’t bought it or earned it. We are just put here and life comes to us from some mysterious source, and we can give it back. That is like the blood coming from the heart and going back to the heart. That blood keeps on flowing and if we tune in to the bloodstream of blessing the world comes alive. The same thing happens if we cut off the bloodstream or drain the sap from a tree; life withers.
DAVID STEINDL-RAST, from an interview in Sacred Journey, October 2001, quoted in David Steindl-Rast: Essential Writings

With Spring in the Air, we came with gardening tools in hand, to try to weave some magic. Our Garden may not quite be the peace-filled place that we yearn for it to be but…
We have made a start and the pictures show that there is pleasure in a work in progress.
As Spring turns to Summer our work continues.
