Off To The Brethren!



Many of you will be familiar with my annual visit to the Brethren in the Monastery. I have been associated with them for many years now…….🤓 I have always tried to make at least one visit a year to the Community. Over the past several years I have gone to share in their lifestyle….entering into the rhythm that prevails in the Community.

Will be joining them on Saturday, next,  for the whole of the following week. I’m unlikely to be spending much time here on the blog.

Will be holding you all….family, friends et al in my prayerful thoughts.

Take Care!

Be Blest!



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!
