The Quiet Garden

Jesus said, ‘Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest’.    Mark 6:31

You are welcome to come and join us in St Peter’s Place, Fishbourne Church Hall, (two miles west of Chichester), for a morning of rest, quiet and spiritual reflection between 10am and 12.15pm on any of the 4th Tuesdays in 2017.  The Theme for this year is ‘THE LIGHT’.

 

Forthcoming meetings take place on the following dates:

September 26: Caterina Brown, soul friend:  “And all shall be well”.
October 24: Max Millett, spiritual director “Light – exploring the metaphor”.
November 28th: Marion Syms, spirituality networker:  “Dawn to dusk … the changing light of each new day”.  

“And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed” (Genesis 2:8). 
Jesus said:  “See how the lilies of the field grow . . . Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these” (Matthew 6:28)
T S Eliot wrote in Part III of ‘East Coker’ . . .”I said to my soul, be still . . . . the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.  Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing”

Sit either inside the Hall or outside in the churchyard, becoming aware of the rhythm of your breathing, being present to the presence of God; or walk through the water meadows, either towards Chichester Harbour or beside the stream to the village with its duck-pond and high reeds.
Refreshments, books and craft materials are available to help yourself.
A donation of £5 is suggested to cover expenses.
