New Zealand

I am delighted to be able to share the great news that I have been invited to take up a residential scholarship at the Vaughan Park Retreat Centre in New Zealand. This will be for a 3 month period sometime in 2010 and I shall be undertaking a project to

develop contemporary holistic liturgies that facilitate healing and growth within ecumenical retreat groups

The intention is that I shall aim to produce two books: a book of liturgies and an accompanying leader's handbook.

I am thrilled and really excited to have this opportunity. Thank you so much for all your prayers.

On a rather more mundane front, my chosen 'down time' has been very restorative and helpful. I shall be shortly be commencing a few autumn and winter events, starting with 'Abide in Me' at Shallowford House in mid-September. Please pray for blessings through these coming events.

I hope that you have all enjoyed the summer period. May the Lord bless you as we move into the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.
