This week I had a conversation with someone who asked me the question 'If you could do one small thing to move this situation forward, what would it be?' This made me realise that sometimes taking action, no matter how small the action seems, is the catalyst for change. In otherwords, sometimes you just have to start!
I have always loved sunflowers. I have a favourite mug with Van Gogh's Sunflower painting on, I have sunflower coasters and countless other sunflower 'stuff' that makes me smile.
I often wonder why I love these flower so much. The bright yellow colour is a good start and the way they seem to nod their heads in agreement with my every idea and plan. The image of fields of sunflowers brings back memories of a cherished holiday, which in turn reminds me of family and warmth and a well earned rest.
Join us for our Pioneer Community Retreat, led by Rev Adrian Chatfield
9 - 12 May 2016, at Launde Abbey - limited places!
We frequently have busy, demanding lives. Sometimes it is only by pausing that we allow enough space for God to renew our spirits. We love the fact that this can be enhanced by gathering alongside others. CPL retreats seek to allow the dynamics of community to minister to each of those present, whilst providing plenty of space for those who prefer personal reflection.
