WORKSHOP DAY : LIVING IN THE AWARENESS OF GOD
Saturday 20 Jan, 10am-4pm, at Trinity
We know that God is always present, but it is one thing knowing it and another to allow the opportunity to experience it. Come and spend a day doing a workshop with writer and teacher David Cole, learning how Christians over the centuries have developed ways of doing this.
One of the techniques is Christian meditation which is not about emptying the mind, but about focusing on thoughts and truths about God. Things that can be used in times of quiet and during the normal day. Spending time with God changes people, leading towards wholeness.
It will be an interesting, enjoyable and useful day and will include refreshments and a simple meal.
Contact Margaret to book. Cost £15
