  • Coda 2018 Cywain Gobaith

    At Coda 2018 in Llanidloes 27th – 29th July: We are gathering hope. If only the gleanings are brought together as a basket of bread not left to go stale but shared out enough to feed the inspired small things that we do together.

  • Post Greenbelt 2017

    Last weekend was Greenbelt Festival. In spiritual terms, for me at least, a time to stretch, to get up and be enriched once again. Not because I attended a long list of learned talks by significant theologians. I didn’t. And certainly not because I made a note of everything honourable that was said and done […]

    I think Pip Wilson’s prayer sums it all up for this weekend! A Festival Prayer

  • Close to the Land

    I’ve been reading around the subject of community farms recently and via a few references ended up reading Walter Brueggemann’s book,  ‘The Land, Place as Gift, Promise, and Challenge in Biblical Faith’ All this has led me perilously close (close, but not quite) to John’s area of expertise – Psychogeography.  I noticed John is talking […]
