On Retreat….


Some may know that I  often repair to my very good friends in a Monastery in the north of England for my annual ‘Time for Replenishing’.  Have done this regularly for years -but for the past two – when circumstances prevented my going to stay with the Brethren for a week.

Have known some of the monks for over forty years – have had close links with the Community for decades. It is like ‘Home from Home’ for me….sharing in the daily rhythm of all aspects of Life in Community.

I shall be away from here from Monday..22nd to Monday..29th.

Needless to say…I shall be bearing all my family, friends…..as well as ‘adversaries’.. in my prayerful thoughts!

Be Blest!

  5. I’ve been feeling for some replenishing as well… It’s also good to find time to turn inwards. That’s the only place I find true joy; in reverence with God. Thanks for sharing Bushka
