We are going to have an opportunity for silent meditation on the first Thursday of the month, immediately after coffee morning, at noon. The first one will be on the 4th of April. Subsequent sessions will be on the 2nd of May, and the 6th of June.
Silent meditation will be introduced with a few words and a reading, after which we will sit quietly for 15 minutes or so, and simply be present. It’s not complicated, but many people – including me – find it difficult to “just sit there” for 15 minutes! But I have found there is a lot of peace that comes with just breathing in and breathing out, and being with others in meditation and prayer.
It’s only 15 minutes of silence so we’ll be done well before 12:30. Anyone interested in giving it a try, come on by at noon on the first Thursday of the month. Namaste, peace be with you! – Rev. Bob
Coffee & Chat and “Pub theology”
I’m always happy to meet with people and reflect on their lives, in good times and hard times too. Sometimes it’s nice just to talk things over. If you’d like to meet, you can give me a ring (or text) at 07986 826601, email me at email@example.com, or pop by chapel on Thursdays or Sundays. Please don’t be a stranger. I’m happy to meet at chapel, or at a location more convenient to you.
