Fortnightly Meditation with friends - next meeting 5th July

The leaves of the Trees are for the Healing of the Nations

Fortnightly guided contemplations

“Jesus came to teach us the way of wisdom. He brought us a message that offers to liberate us from both the lies of the world and the lies lodged in ourselves. The words of the Gospel create an alternative consciousness, solid ground on which we can really stand, free from every social order and from every ideology. Jesus called this new foundation the Kingdom of God, and he said it is something that takes place in this world and yet will never be completed in this world. This is where faith comes in. It is so rare to find ourselves trusting not in the systems and -isms of this world, but standing at a place where we offer our bit of salt, leaven, and light.”                                                                                                 Richard Rohr

Ezekiel 47 v12

Along both banks of the river, fruit trees of all kinds will grow. Their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. Each month they will bear fruit, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will be used for food and their leaves for healing.

Rev 22 1&2

Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.

Over 5 fortnightly themed contemplations we will share space to look briefly at where the fruits of the Holy Spirit fit in the picture painted in Ezekiel and Revelations                

We will meet on zoom on the following Tuesdays, at 10am for 45 minutes.
