Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

life with meaning...

life with meaning

"Remember to be gentle with yourself and others.
We are all children of chance
and none can say why some fields will blossom
while others lay brown beneath the August sun.
Care for those around you.
Look past your differences.
Their dreams are no less than yours,
their choices no more easily made.
And give, give in any way you can,
of whatever you possess.
To give is to love. To withhold is to wither.
Care less for your harvest
than for how it is shared
and your life will have meaning
and your heart will have peace."

- Kent Nerburn

"A man ought to carry himself in the world
as an orange tree would if it could
walk up and down in the garden,
swinging perfume from every little censer
it holds up to the air."

supreme good...

supreme good

"[Whilst] everything around me
is ever changing, ever dying,
there is underlying all that change
a living power that is changeless,
that holds all together, that creates,
dissolves and recreates.
That informing power or spirit is God...
And is this power benevolent or malevolent?
I see it as purely benevolent.
For I can see that
in the midst of death, life persists,
in the midst of untruth, truth persists,
in the midst of darkness, light persists.
Hence I gather that God is
Life, Truth, Light. He is Love.
He is the supreme Good."

- Mahatma Gandi

retreat...

personal retreat

Feeling a bit out of focus?
Need a rest?


"We need silence to be alone with God,
to speak to him, to listen to him,
to ponder his words deep in our hearts.
We need to be alone with God in silence
to be renewed and transformed.
Silence gives us a new outlook on life.
In it we are filled with the energy of God himself
that makes us do all things with joy."

- Mother Teresa
