St James’ Church, Shaftesbury
Pilgrim has lost track of how long he has been walking. For the last three days he’s followed an old drover’s road but there are no signposts to reassure him he’s on the right track. Today there are gusts of wind which whip up the dust and sting his eyes. Wrapped in his own thoughts, he becomes aware of others heading in the same direction. Some hobble with sticks, and others seem to be in a hurry to reach the city of palms before the weather worsens.
Pilgrim is exhausted. His feet ache and his eyes are so very sore. He decides to rest under a cedar tree just for a moment or two. Not for the first time a thought gnaws away in his mind that his life is about to change and he’s excited and fearful in equal measure.
Our theme this week is “A Time of Change!……….”, when there is a change in the service leadership team, a change in Pilgrim’s life – and maybe in ours as well!
Do come and join us to share thoughts and hospitality together both during and after our gathering. You will be very welcome!
