Easter IV Potluck Worship ~ May 11, 2022 at 7:15pm I know this drill. I settle down, I pause, I breathe. I tell my mind, please, be still.

Grounding and being…the journey of Lent continues You are invited to have a candle ready to light.

The Practice of Getting Lost I lost my hat while gazing at the moon, then I lost my mind.  Rumi So this week I will endeavour to be fully present in the lostness; to examine all I’ve left behind in order to feel safe;  be mindful of undiscovered gifts; and to find new ways to befriend uncertainty and hopefully discover new and yet undiscovered paths for the journey ahead. https://www.morebeyond.co.za/   “I have found things while I was lost that I …
