After a group photo we set off for Doffcocker Lodge. Chris distributed pencils and paper then instructed us to draw up an alphabetical list of anything we saw or felt on the walk for which we could give thanks to God.
We walked along the path, pausing after a few minutes to pray. A Bible and a rock were produced which represented a firm foundation for FAITH.
At our second prayer stop Ben produced a glass containing water – was it half full or half empty? Binoculars were brought out which were ‘fiddled with’ to focus. This showed us that by keeping our focus on God we would have HOPE for the future.
The final stretch of the walk brought with it an opportunity to watch the fluffy cygnets following mother swan. Too soon the walk ended and we gathered for a final prayer based on the popular wedding reading from Paul’s letter to the Corinthians on love. Ben explained that it was intended to be about unconditional Christian LOVE or AGAPE.
Back at the Triangle a welcome brew and ice cream awaited us. Thank you to Chris and Ben for showing us a very different style of worship.
