The trustees enjoyed an opportunity to spend time together to relax, be inspired, and to concentrate on being at one with our Lord away from the hustle and bustle of the world. We are grateful to Graham, the vicar of West Haddon, who led us with readings and worship.
During our quiet times activities to help our concentration were laid on by Sue Tringham whose home we met in. The artistic amongst us painted stones, coloured Celtic knots, or did drawings of the spring flowers in the garden. Some, myself included, sat quietly in the sunny garden intending to read but really managing to sit still for much longer than normal, with our thoughts. A really beneficial day for us all.
I do recommend that you all try one of our future quiet days.
The pictures show the less quiet time when we all got together for lunch, provided by Sandy and enjoyed by all.
