Take time out to reflect, be still, pause.
We have a growing collection of reflections, most of them based on events held at St Marys, Quarry Street, Guildford. You have found the main collection which is under Spirituality.
ADVENT and CHRISTMAS
St Mary's Advent 2017 reflection one Little Town, Big Story by Jo Trickey. Reflection two by Sarah Hutton about Mary's story, including the question "do we tend our well"? . Reflection three How silently by Lyn McKay with a message about setting aside times of silence.
NEW YEAR , FRESH START
St Mary's is open throughout the year to provide space to reflect, but not every day. In addition to the regular openings and events in Advent, Christmas and before Easter we usually open on New Year's Eve and more frequently in the summer.
We have tried to capture some of that atmosphere here.
The first series were written during Advent 2017.
These reflections from our New Years Eve series are about:
how light is stronger than darkness;
walking in other peoples' shoes; and
the contrasting call to "go" and "be".
