Mothers’ Union Quiet Day at Weedon Bec

IMG_1963About 30 members gathered together to relax and revive our spiritual life at the lovely location of Weedon Bec. The countryside is beautiful. There was a canal walk and a pocket park to explore in the quiet times, and it was soon easy to become absorbed by our thoughts and ignore the trains that I am told pass by every 3 minutes.

Archdeacon Richard led the day for us. With his short, thought provoking and sometimes humorous  sessions leading up to the quiet times he gave us lots to think about.

The sessions were entitled, “A new beginning”, “Priorities” and “Keep on keeping on “.

At lunch time we were able to catch up with old friends and loosen our tongues a little.

The day closed with worship in the church and the opportunity to join in some good M.U. singing.

We thank Archdeacon Richard for spending the day with us and for all his careful preparation. I would like to thank Sue for making all this possible and Sandy for the much needed cups of tea.

There will be a quiet evening in the north of the diocese in September with Archdeacon Gordon. I hope that I will meet lots of you there.

In this busy world it is so good to have some time out to spend with our Lord.
