Sunday 22 September, 10.30 – 11.30 am: Harvest festival

“i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes”
EE Cummings

Sunday 15 September, 10.30 – 11.30 am: Story Time

Dostoevsky wrote, “But how can you live and have no story to tell?”

Robert McKee adds, “A fine work of art – music, dancing , story – has the power to silence the chatter in the mind and lift us to another place.”

In this service it is story time. We will hear tales from gifted story tellers – Jesus and Rumi, the Sufi mystic. We will think about whether they are far more enigmatic and open ended about the truths we seek than we remember in our simple childhood memories.

Tom Grimshaw will pose these puzzles and warmly invites you to attend: make yourself comfortable and lose yourself in your imagination. All welcome.

Sunday 8 September, 10.30 – 11.30 am: When I was woven in the depths of the earth

“When I was woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
Psalm 139

Join us as Kathleen Fitzgibbon reflects on the underlying message from this passage of the Old Testament and a range of beliefs from other faiths, including karma and pre-destination, to understand how these may bring comfort in our lives.
