Louise Rickard from Holy Trinity Headington Quarry is hosting some ‘Outside in Nature’ gatherings. The next one is on Saturday May 25th they meet at 10am – 1300 at Dry Sandford Pit nature reserve. The focus of this month’s gathering will be on authentic dialogue.
This gathering is ecumenical and open to all who have an interest in nature connection and spirituality; of whatever faith or none. Come with kindness and curiosity and respect for one another and the nature all around us; and bring with you an attitude of experimentation, playfulness and readiness to connect with nature.
Please bring clothing suitable for being outdoors the whole time, something to sit on (newspaper in a plastic bag is fine), a flask of tea/coffee if desired; a poem or prayer you wish to share related to the theme of real and authentic dialogue, and showing up in conversations.
