God’s grandeur at Little Gidding

 

It is easy to find God at Little Gidding. He is in the beautiful little church and the tiny peaceful graveyard. He is in the garden, now full of autumn colour. And He is in the high (for Cambridgeshire) fields and the wide skies. The world, at Little Gidding, is ‘charged with the grandeur of God’.

For our group from St Mark’s on Saturday, God was also in the dancing wind and the warm sunshine – a gloriously unexpected summer day in mid-October.

We gathered for a day of quiet contemplation and some gentle instruction on the theme of Jesus’ teachings from St John’s Gospel.

‘I am ….’ Each short session was followed by some quiet time to sit, think, walk, pray, read.

Lunch, as usual was nourishing and convivial, and the cakes, as ever, did not disappoint.
