Last August, I told a friend I was “allowing my days to unfold in their own unique ways”. I was feeling stunned and in absolute awe of the beauty in the natural world surrounding us, and my regular walks amongst the trees provided my safe and sacred space. “Here,” I said, was “where I entered a space of nothingness”, suggesting that perhaps this is what surrendering really looks like – a place where there are no goals or purpose, other than to rest and absorb the wonder. With no planning or agenda in sight I was free to ‘be’, hope and trust.
Over two days this week past and present trainers and Co-ordinators joined with Seasons for Growth Companions, Priests, parishioners, CSO and diocesan personnel to celebrate 20 years of the Seasons for Growth program.
