Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them- that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let the things flow forward in a natural way. - Lao Tzu

Dear Community

 

Sitting in the office, watching the leaves fall off the trees in the garden outside, got me thinking about the saying by Heraclitus of Ephesus - the only thing constant is change.   Just like seasons, life and people change too. You get things the way you like it and then something beyond your authority bumps you off. You gain friends, lose a few. You grow up and learn things you never thought you would know through your journey. You’ll travel a pathway with curves and intersections, and that’s where you’ll meet new people. But not everyone you’ll meet will stay with you through out. There are those who will travel with you and stay a lifetime but there are also those people who you’ll only meet in a crossroad. 

 

Besides the season, what’s changing in your life?  How is it you live alongside change?

 

The Sacred Spaces team at i4cc is passionate about creating spaces for people to connect with God through creativity, silence, dialogue, rest, writing and prayer.  We have two Quiet Days on offer during April – one on 11th with Rev Trevor Hudson and, for those who find it hard to take time off of work, another one on Saturday 13th with Spiritual Director and Prayer Guide, Anne Hart.

 

Our spaces are open to both people who are familiar with days of reflection and those who have never tried one before.  We are an inclusive community and all denominations are welcome

Looking ahead into May:

 

Starting on the 4th May, we will be offering a six-week ‘Hearts on Fire’ course.  If you want to learn more about Ignatian Spirituality this is the best place to begin. It offers an engaging introduction over the course of six sessions of two hours each. We open up the Ignatian approach to Christian Spirituality which is about Finding God in All Things and becoming ever-more aware of God in the midst of our often very full daily lives. It also provides an introduction to and some experience of some of the basic Ignatian ways of praying including Imaginative Gospel Contemplation and the Examen of Consciousness.  Contact us for more info!

 

“May we allow out Gethsemanes to become opportunities for us to renew our trust and confidence in God’s purpose for our lives” – Trevor Hudson, co-founder
