St James’ Church, Shaftesbury
Pilgrim leaves sunlit meadows to follow a path through woodland – suddenly he hears an animal cry – sounds like it is in pain. There it is again – he walks towards where he thinks it’s coming from and then he sees it – a frightened stag with its rear leg caught in barbed wire. He looks around for help but there’s just him and the frightened animal.
“It’s all right, it’s all right” he whispers. He slowly untwists the wire and somehow manages to release the leg which is badly cut and bleeding – but he’s done it and the stag runs free into the trees. For a few moments Pilgrim stands still, elated at what he was able to do.
He gives thanks to God and with a spring in his step walks on wondering - did God make that happen?
Come and discover the answer!
Enjoy fellowship and refreshments with us afterwards.
