A friend, colleague and co-conspirator shared this poem with me. I think a lot of us have a difficult relationship with Church and, if we do as humans, God certainly does.ChurchPosted on September 2, 2013And while I’m away I’m leaving the fiancée in charge Have you met her?

Here are some photos from our time at Greenbelt 2013. Photos are of the Healing Herb Pathway in the Grove, and the Sunday evening fire ritual.
Hi, thought it might be useful to also put the sheet from Sunday evening at the Grove, Greenbelt up on here. To make it more easily available for all, I've attached it as a .doc file below. Please do contact us if there are any issues accessing it in this format. Fire at the Heart … Continue reading Fire at the Heart of the Earth
We thought that it might be good for people to have access to the written material from the healing herb pathway, so have attached the writing here as various jpg files.

It has involved: welding, pyrography, collecting … Continue reading Fire at the Heart of the Earth / Healing Herbs Pathway

We looked at this passage in Luke (ch13v1-9) with a parable about a Fig Tree, following shortly after some questions put to Jesus about recent terrible events. We thought about what fruit in the story represents, and about growing character and practical action and the link between … Continue reading Open Book… Fig Trees
This afternoon we celebrated Imbolc/ Candlemass/ St Brigid's Day together, including a large tribe of children, so I thought I'd put the sheet (that gave us the rough gist of a plan) up on here. Spring & fire & candles & food & fun 🙂 Imbolc 2013
This evening we watched a film, "I am slave."
